Hindi movie star Hrithik Roshan, who underwent a brain surgery for removal of a clot at the Hinduja Hospital, has been discharged on Thursday. When he came out of the hospital, Hrithik was accompanied by his father and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan. A source close to the actor revealed: He is fine now but he will be taking rest at least for a month now. Doctors have asked him to take rest and complete the medication.
The 39-year-old underwent a successful brain surgery Sunday afternoon. After the surgery, Rakesh Roshan said that while shooting a stunt for Bang Bang in Phuket, Bangkok, Hrithik had a head injury and landed in the hospital. While he was in the hospital, the members of film fraternity Shah Rukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ashutosh Gowariker, Gauri Khan, Karan Johar among others visited him. Yesterday, the actor put up a picture on Facebook saying that he was okay.
What was Hrithik suffering from?
He was suffering from chronic subdural haematoma. It's a condition where the blood and the products of its breakdown between the surface of the brain and its outermost covering called the dura. In this condition, the blood slowly leaks out of the veins surrounding the brain to form a clot. The condition is termed chronic because it manifests several weeks after it first starts to bleed.
Usually this type of bleeding occurs when a person suffers a mild head injury (reports suggest that Hrithik suffered a head injury during the filming of Krrish 3) or when a haemorrhage has been left to heal itself. It is also seen in elderly people, due to the shrinking of the brain. In most cases a person might not even know that he/she is suffering from the condition, but might experience mild symptoms such as dizziness, headaches and drowsiness. In severe cases he/she might suffer from severe symptoms like vomiting, confusion, coma and difficulty in speaking or swallowing. Read more
