Doctors to remove Prime Minister’’s stitches todayFebruary 8th, 2009 - 12:54 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 8 (ANI): Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh’’s stitches will be removed on Sunday. He will also undergo a complete health check-up today.
Dr Ramakant Panda from the Asian Heart Institute will remove Dr. Singh’’s incisions at his official 7, Race Course Road residence.
The doctors have only allowed Singh’’s family members and some key officials to meet him until his surgical incisions are completely healed.
The Prime Minister, who is recuperating after a coronary bypass surgery, is being constantly attended to by his personal physicians Dr. Nitish Naik, Dr. Ambuj Roy and Dr. Sandeep Seth.
Singh is presently undergoing cardiac rehabilitation under the guidance of Asian Heart Institute’’s Dr. Ashish Contractor.
Shortly after his discharge from hospital on February 1, Singh started performing some of his duties from his residence. He is expected to fully resume his work from February 22 onwards.
Dr. Manmohan Singh was admitted in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on January 24, where an angiography-X-ray examination of the blood vessels was conducted on him. He also underwent several blood chemistry tests, CT scan and ECG, which affirmed five arterial blockages in the heart.
Singh opted for immediate surgery as he wanted to be ready and fully active before the elections. The operation lasted for over twelve hours.
In the post-operative period, he has been provided with all the required machines at his official residence.
Dr. Singh’’s diet has been supplemented with a high intake of carbohydrates and protein. He has also been advised to follow a strict exercise regimen to keep control of his diabetes.
He had earlier undergone cardiac bypass surgery in 1990 and an angioplasty in 2004. (ANI)
