Dr Shashidhar Buggi, director, (Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases) said the post-monsoon season causes asthma in many people. "We conducted a thorough check on him and found asthma and jaundice, both in early stages. In September, many asthma patients land in hospital," he said. “Darshan is a heavy smoker because of which there is infection in his lungs, aggravating the asthma," Dr. Buggi said.
"At Victoria Hospital, doctors discovered lung-related problems and immediately shifted him here," he said, adding, "An x-ray revealed asthma and blood samples showed early stages of jaundice."
The tests were scheduled for the entire day on Saturday. A team of senior doctors is treating Darshan. Darshan's detoriarating health condition might come as a shock and concern to his loyal fans across the state. Darshan will be discharged on Monday, Sep 12 from the hospital.
