Kolkata: West Bengal Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi is reportedly stable and is recuperating in the city’s Belle Vue Hospital. His condition is under the constant vigil of the Medical board.
According to the latest medical bulletin as released by the hospital’s CEO P Tandon, he is stable hemodynamically and cheerful. There is no “active bleeding” from his nose. He had a peaceful sleep on Monday night. On Tuesday, he had light breakfast with fruit juice.
Tripathi was admitted with acute epistaxis (nose bleed) on Sunday. The bleeding started around 6am, and he was taken to the hospital around 7.30am. A minor surgery was conducted at 8.30pm. “He was bleeding due to high blood pressure,” said a senior official of the Raj Bhawan.
According to Tripathi’s doctors, the 82-year-old has hypertension, is diabetic with coronary artery diseases and is on aspirin, which increases the tendency to bleed. “The governor is stable. He is doing fine,” said SSKM’s ENT head Arunabha Sengupta, who is a part of the medical team treating him.
