Dilip Kumar Contracts Lung Infection Again, Still On Nasal Feed Only
Dilip Kumar Discharged From Lilavati Hospital, Thespian Back Home
Dilip Kumar Health Update: On Nasal Feed, Not To Be Discharged From Hospital For 3 More Days
Dilip Kumar Admitted To Lilavati Hospital, Suffering From Aspiration Pneumonia And Age-Related Problems
Banu is relieved. Dilip Kumar is back home after a 2-week stay in Lilavati,
perhaps the longest stay of the many admissions he has had in the same hospital
in the past few years. FYI, Dilip Kumar was wheeled into Lilavati Hospital
(Bandra) on September 5 a few minutes before 3 pm. 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 broke the news that the legend had been diagnosed with Aspiration
Banu was then told that Dilip Kumar will have to kept under strict observation
in ICU for the next 72 hours- but the senior actor had to undergo several tests
and a lot of treatment this time. This and the high amount of observation which
was required subsequently drove the doctors to keep him for so long.
Dilip Kumar was discharged from the hospital on September 18. However, the 95-year old legend continues to be on nasal feed--- as a large amount of food which he was taking a few days before he was admitted had entered his lungs--- and the doctors still feel that he should not be given any type of food orally (SpotboyE.com was the FIRST to bring you the nasal feed update on Dilip Kumar). A lot of medicines are being given intravenously at the same time. A call on when to remove the nasal feed will be taken by a team of doctors only after few days. "So far so good. Dilip saab is out of danger. His vital parameters are stable," says a source. Is he out of danger? "Yes, no cause of immediate worry," the source revealed.
In November 2017, Dilip Kumar was admitted to the hospital for ‘mild’ pneumonia and advised complete bed rest by doctors. "This time the stay was longer than otherwise but it's always better to have a longish observation period if the problems are generally associated with age, which is true in the case of Dilip Kumar," the source added.
What is Aspiration Pneumonia?
Aspiration pneumonia is a type of lung infection that is due to a relatively large amount of material from the stomach or mouth entering the lungs. Signs and symptoms often include fever and cough of relatively rapid onset.
