Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma Oli has gone to hospital for health checkup.
He reached Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center inside the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) premises Tuesday morning after abdominal pain, according to Baluwatar sources.
He underwent fourth dialysis in less than a month at Grande Hospital on Sunday.
PM Oli underwent plasmapheresis seven times in Singapore in August. Plasmapheresis is a term used to refer to a broad range of procedures through which blood components are filtered outside the body.
It was done on PM Oli, who had a kidney transplant 12 years ago, to remove antibodies for immunosuppression.
PM Oli is now said to be mulling another transplant as the transplanted kidney has stopped functioning and he needs regular dialysis.
