Buenos Aires, October 9 (RHC)-- Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez's surgery has been satisfactory and she is recovering favourably,’ the presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro announced on Tuesday.
In statements to reporters and supporters gathered outside the Fundación Favaloro clinic in Buenos Aires, Scoccimarro added the head of state is “in very good mood” and that “she thanked the medical team and all the people” who have expressed their solidarity with her.
On Tuesday morning the Argentine president underwent surgery for a subdural haematoma which demanded minor cranium incisions to drain the blood accumulated. The clot had been detected last Saturday. Surgery lasted more than two hours. Fernandez suffered a blow in the head on August 12th, which caused the haematoma.
The medical report delivered to the media said surgery was ‘without complications’ and the patient evolution is favourable.
In the next 48 hours the president can receive brief visits from direct relatives, and will remain in the intensive care unit. She will then have to spend another week in hospital and the convalescence period can last from 30 to 45 days.
Cristina Fernandez was first admitted to the Favaloro clinic with intense migraine and arrhythmia on Saturday and was submitted to cardiac and neurological tests. The subdural cranium haematoma was then diagnosed.
