Inspector Daulatram Jogawat, who was fat-shamed by author and socialite Shobhaa De onTwitter and who later underwent bariatric surgery in Mumbai, has recovered from a urinary infection after a day’s stay at a Neemuch hospital. Jogawat was kept under observation for 24 hours after he complained of minor fever and a burning sensation in his urinary tract on Tuesday night.
“It was a minor infection. It subsided after initial treatment. I am doing well now,” Jogawat told to Hindustan Times. Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who had successfully performed a bariatric surgery on Jogawat ,said he is currently stable and will be able to rejoin the workforce soon.
“Jogawat had been suffering from a urinary infection for a while. However, the condition was unrelated to his bariatric surgery, which took place in Mumbai. He called me after persistent episodes of fever and chills. I requested the local doctor to run primary tests and to not put him on heavy antibiotics as the complication wasn’t severe,” said Dr Lakdawala.
The Neemuch doctor treating Jogawat, Dr Vipul Garg, said he was discharged after a day and will be on oral medication for the next five days. “The patient came to the hospital complaining of chills and a severe burning sensation while urinating. We initially thought that this may have resulted from the major surgery he underwent, but later realised it was a urine infection” said Dr Garg.
Dr Lakdawala said the infection was probably related to his diabetes level. However, as Jogawat is on a strict diet, his sugar levels are expected to come under control. “The doctor asked me if we needed to do a CT scan. I told him that Jogawat was stable and there was no need to for additional tests,” he said.
