    Are we sure this story is true? It might be she is using this as an excuse for more cosmetic surgery in her vain attempt to look glamorous.

    Pedro Saco, a doctor who is lying to the people of this country. He knows very well that she is not sick. I wonder what's the amount of money being paid to this doctor for this fake surgery.

    After a thyroidectomy she might expect to experience the classic effects of hypothyroidism - massive weight gain, and difficulty losing weight, depression, emotional instability, mood swings, inability to concentrate, memory-loss, fatigue, slurred speech, confusion, etc.

    Dosage of hormones Synthroid and/or Cytomel, Synthroid/Levothyroxine. Cytomil/Levathroid (T4 and T3 hormone combos) will help her symptoms, but it frequently takes 3 or 4 years to arrive at a stabilising regime.

    These symptoms appear to be very similar to her already diagnosed ‘bipolar disorder’;
    she may have been suffering from thyroid-related problems for some time.

    According to Chavez the CIA is giving SA Socialist leaders cancer.

    Unfortunately they are not that clever...

    This is a massive opportunity for a decent democracy-inspired, public-spirited individual. The surgical procedure involves cutting CFK's throat. How about our decent democracy-inspired, public-spirited individual does that and then goes for a siesta? Or perhaps pops out for half-a-dozen drinks?

    “What will she be “Jumbo Cristina”??? I can just see it.” Tim @#7, re. #3.

    Like in Zoology - the Greater Weasel, the Weasel, the Lesser Weasel, and the Least Weasel form species within the genus,
    Christins may have a variant called Christina the Great, and Christina the Greatest.

    Which, as Russell Crowe says in 'Master And Commander', would be the 'lesser of two weevils'?
