MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan has shown signs of improvement, and doctors at the Seven Hills Hospital Friday decided against another surgery on the megastar. "The surgery was supposed to happen but after the check up, doctors decided there is no need of any surgery. He is doing fine," a source told IANS.

Following two abdominal surgeries Saturday, the 69-year-old veteran complained of pain, due to which his stay in the hospital was extended. On Thursday night, Big B blogged that more doctors had been called for consultation over his condition and that an incision on the neck was made -- indicating serious health concerns. But all seems under control now.

Amitabh has chosen to keep his medical condition private, and his family members as well as the hospital authorities have been asked to remain tigh-tlipped about it. "I refrain from giving greater details of my condition... in the west patient has the right to not disclose - even to family!! I realise anxious members of EF and TwFmXt need to know...whenever there is some important procedure, will inform," Big B had tweeted Thursday. So far there is no new update from the actor, whose recurring abdominal condition is a result of an injury on the sets of "Coolie" 30 years ago.
