Salman, who had undergone a surgery in 2011 after suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, was supposed to go to the US for a check-up but the trip has now been postponed.

Now that he doesn't suffer from constant pain the visit has been delayed. It's a two years treatment with four visits and he has to go there every six to eight months for treatment.

The date is not yet fixed but he will be going sometime in February or March.
