Though Amitabh Bachchan is doing well and will soon be discharged from the Seven Hills Hospital in Juhu, Mumbai, the real recovery might take a few months.

Bachchan, who underwent abdominal surgery on February 11, is on the mend. Though he was supposed to be discharged a week ago, he complained of pain in the abdominal area.

Now that his post-surgery pain has subsided the doctors have allowed him to take a shower and eat.

Amitabh tweeted: “Looks like a few more days before they set me free, but recovery at home will take a few months.” –
