Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who underwent shoulder reconstruction surgery at New Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on August 3, was discharged on Sunday.
The panel of doctors which was treating her, reviewed her condition and decided to discharge her around 8am after determining that her infection had healed and that she no longer had fever.
“Mrs Gandhi was discharged from the hospital this morning in a stable condition. She has been advised rest and continue her medication,” said Dr DS Rana, chairman, Ganga Ram Hospital.
“She is likely to visit the hospital for further evaluation of her condition in the coming week,” Dr Rana added.
Sixty nine-year-old Gandhi had dislocated and fractured her left shoulder after she fell following a spell of dizziness during a road show in Varanasi on August 2. She had been running fever for a few days ahead of the road show.
Mumbai-based orthopaedic surgeon Dr Sanjay Desai who specialises in shoulder reconstruction, had flown in for the surgery.
The Congress chief also suffered from massive electrolyte imbalance that also triggered diarrhoea, fever and vomiting.
She was flown in to Delhi directly from her roadshow in Varanasi in a serious condition and was admitted to the Army Research and Referral Hospital. A day later on August 3, she was shifted to Ganga Ram hospital.
