October 13, 2008 18:32 IST

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan [Images], who is undergoing treatment at the Lilavati hospital after he complained of severe abdominal pain, is in a stable condition and recuperating, hospital sources said on Monday.

Doctors at the hospital in suburban Bandra, where the actor is admitted, said the abdominal pain which Bachchan was suffering from, has been relieved due to the medicines he has been taking over the past two days. He is responding to the medication being administered and is likely to be discharged in the next two to three days, they said.

Doctors had said on Sunday that the results of the medical tests conducted on the actor had not revealed any abnormalities after he underwent a blood investigation and CT scan of the abdomen on Saturday.

Bachchan was admitted to hospital on his birthday on October 11 after he complained of severe abdominal pain and hospital sources had said the actor was suffering from suspected bowel dysfunction. Family members and close friends visited the actor in the hospital on Monday.
