Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev doing well after emergency brain surgery

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, it was revealed today, faced a life-threatening medical situation recently. Dr Vinit Suri, Senior Consultant Neurologist, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi, today said that an emergency brain surgery was conducted on March 17.

"Sadhguru was suffering from a severe headache for the last four weeks. Despite the severity of the pain, he continued with his schedule and activities, and even conducted the nightlong MahaShivRatri celebrations on March 8," said Dr Suri, expressing surprise over the spiritual exponent's stamina and will power.

After conducting an MRI scan of the brain on March 14, it was advised that a surgery was a must. "Though he was advised immediate hospitalization, Sadhguru mentioned to the doctors that he had not missed a single meeting in his last 40 years. Despite severe and agonizing symptoms, he completed his scheduled meetings and a media conclave on March 15 by managing his pain by using pain killers," the doctor said.

With his neurological status rapidly worsening along with weakness of the left leg and marked worsening of headache with recurrent vomiting, the brain surgery had to be conducted on an emergency basis. "Sadhguru has shown steady progress and his brain, body and vital parameters have improved to normal levels. His recovery has been much better than expected," the expert said.
