Bolsonaro will be flown to Sao Paulo for possible intestinal surgery جراحة
Official sources said today, Wednesday, that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will be transferred from Brasilia to Sao Paulo to assess whether he should undergo an “emergency” surgery due to an “intestinal obstruction”.
Bolsonaro was admitted at dawn to the Armed Forces Hospital in Brasilia due to abdominal pain and after suffering frequent seizures in recent days.
According to Communications Minister Fabio Faria, the president will now be taken to a hospital in Sao Paulo, where it will be assessed whether he will undergo a new abdominal surgery.
The presidency had initially stated that Bolsonaro would undergo checks in Brasilia and would remain under observation for 24 to 48 hours, not necessarily inside a hospital.
However, an intestinal obstruction was later discovered and the possibility of a new operation, which Minister Faria said would be the result of the attack he suffered in 2018, in the middle of the election campaign that brought him to power, when he was stabbed in the stomach by someone.
Since Thursday last week, when he presented his usual live program via social networks, Bolsonaro has shown his hiccups, and in his subsequent public interventions, he has continued with symptoms.
In September last year, the 66-year-old president underwent surgery in Sao Paulo to remove a kidney stone.
In the past three years, he underwent five operations, four of them as a result of the assault he suffered in 2018.
Bolsonaro was stabbed while being carried on the shoulders of a crowd at an election rally in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais state.
The assailant was arrested immediately after the assault, but he declared that he was beyond doubt, as the judge considered that he was unable to respond to his actions due to his mental problems.
Last July, the far-right leader, one of the rulers most skeptical of the seriousness of the novel coronavirus, tested positive for COVID-19 and spent twenty isolated days in Palacio de la Alvorada, his official residence in Brasilia, until he overcame it. the disease.
