London, Nov.15 (ANI): Spanish golfer Seve Ballesteros could be moved out of intensive care as soon as next week.
According to the La Paz Hospital treating the five-time major winner, he is responding very well to the medical treatment.
According to The Telegraph, the hospital statement said: “The neurological evolution of the patient Mr Severiano Ballesteros remains favourable. He continues to receive rehabilitative treatment and it is likely that he could leave the Intensive Care Unit next week and be moved to another ward.”
Ballesteros, 51, was diagnosed with a brain tumor at La Paz hospital after losing consciousness at Madrid Airport early last month. He underwent a lengthy operation on October 24 to reduce pressure on his brain caused by an edema and to remove remaining tumor tissues following two previous operations. (ANI)
