Dilip Kumar is recovering but slowly. Three days ago, he was admitted to Lilavati Hospital. SpotboyE.com brings you the latest about his medical condition and stands by Saira Banu in her hour of crisis
On September 5 at 2.30 pm, Dilip Kumar was wheeled into
Lilavati Hospital (Bandra). The thespian had complained complained of
uneasiness and a worried Saira Banu got him admitted pronto. A tweet on his
Twitter handle soon read: “Saab has been admitted to Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital
as he was bit uneasy due to a chest infection. He’s recuperating. Requesting
your duas and prayers. –FF.” SpotboyE.com EXCLUSIVELY found out that the
legend was down with acute respiratory infection and had been diagnosed with
Aspiration Pnemonia. At this point, he was also running temperature and
dealing with many other age-related problems. Saira Banu was told that Dilip
Kumar will have to kept under strict observation in ICU for the next 72 hours.
The latest on Dilip Kumar is that his vital parameters are stable, but he will still be in Lilavati for at least 3 more days. The 95-year old legend is now on nasal feed--- as a large amount of food which he was taking had started entering his lungs--- and the doctors still do not feel that he should be given any food orally. A lot of medicines are being given intravenously at the same time. Will the nasal feel be removed when he goes home? No, not immediately for sure. A call on that will be taken by a team of doctors only after few days.
Is he out of danger? Yes. Is he conscious? Yes. We understand, Saira Banu is terribly worried, this hospital stay is perhaps going to be longer than the other times he was admitted. A friend of hers tells us, "She is worried 24 hours. It's a very difficult time for her, and what she is doing for her husband may not be possible for many people to do for their near and dear ones."
In November 2017, Dilip Kumar was admitted to the hospital for ‘mild’ pneumonia and advised complete bed rest by doctors. SpotboyE.com prays for Dilip saab's recovery.
