Rajnikanth to remain in hospital for a few days

Actor Rajnikanth, who was admitted to Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre Friday (13-May-2011) night for investigations, will continue to remain in hospital for a few days, hospital sources said.
Rajinikanth went for a complete health check up at the Ramachandra Hospital in Chennai. Sources say that he consulted a specialist brought in from abroad and underwent a complete medical check up.

Rajinikanth, who had returned home after two rounds of hospitalization, was rushed back to hospital on Saturday when his respiratory problems worsened. A series of investigations including a CT scan was done by a team of doctors, who concluded that he suffered from pneumonia.

On April 29, the actor was first taken to the hospital when he complained of fatigue and vomiting on the first day of shooting for his upcoming film Rana. Doctors at the St Isabel's Hospital said he was dehydrated and exhausted. He was discharged the same day. On May 4, he was moved into the ICU of the hospital with breathing difficulty and discomfort. A week later, he was discharged and advised rest.

His wife, Latha, said on Friday that his health condition was improving. Senior doctors visited him at his residence. But in Saturday, the family moved him to Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre after he once again complained of discomfort.

Detailed medical investigations were carried out for recurrent respiratory infection and gastro intestinal problems he had been suffering for the last few weeks. He is in the ward (not in the intensive care unit) and has been progressing well, a press release from the hospital said. It added that he had been advised complete rest by doctors attending on him.
