Following a new round of medical checkups at the Buenos Aires Fundación Favaloro clinic Friday evening, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez has been discharged from the inpatient phase regarding her neurological and neuro-surgery conditions, presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro announced Saturday morning.
As for Monday, the medical team in charge of CFK’s post-surgery treatment will decide when the 60-year old leader could resume activities.
Scoccimarro held a short press conference to confirm Cristina Fernández has been showing “progress” since the cranium head surgery she was forced to undergo back in October 8 to have a blood clot removed.
Scoccimarro also informed that doctors decided to perform a Holter monitoring test on Ms. Kirchner this weekend to check on the arrhythmia she has been recently diagnosed with. “According to the results, on Monday it will be evaluated the return to regular duties,” the spokesman added.
However despite having been discharged from the neurological condition, Cristina Fernandez is banned from flying for at least another month and on 9 December will undergo another neurological checkup.
The Argentine president has remained on medical leave at the Olivos presidential residency over the past month.
The brief release said that given the favorable post-surgery evolution of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and the satisfactory results of the neuro-imaging control done on Friday plus the normality in the lab tests, it has been decided her neurological and neuro-surgery discharge, indicating however that the ban on air travel, initially, will extend for the coming 30 days. A re-evaluation with a new neuro-imaging will be performed on 9 December on the sixtieth day of surgery.
From a cardio-vascular point of view and as was reported 23 October, the patient will have a prolonged Holster monitoring test over the weekend and according to the results on Monday it will be evaluated the return to regular duties.
