Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma has been hospitalized Thursday midnight after heart complaints.
He has been admitted at the Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center after complaint of unease in heart in the midnight.
Senior cardiologist at the hospital Dr Arun Sayami told Setopati that his health is normal now. "His health is normal now. I talked with him for a short while. We will keep him under observation during the afternoon. He may probably be discharged in the evening," Dr Sayami said.
PM Oli was discharged on March 13 after a second kidney transplant at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) on March 4.
Oli was also hospitalized at the Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center inside the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) premises for 10 days at the end of November 2019.
He was discharged on December 5 after recuperating at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital following appendectomy on November 26. He was initially kept on a ventilator after the surgery to remove appendix as he was also suffering from peritonitis.
He had reached the hospital that morning after abdominal pain. He was diagnosed of appendicitis and peritonitis and underwent laparotomy (incision on abdominal wall) and appendectomy (removal of appendix).
Peritonitis is an inflammation of the peritoneum, the tissue that lines the inner wall of the abdomen and covers and supports most of the abdominal organs and is usually caused by infection from bacteria or fungi.
Peritonitis, if untreated, can rapidly spread into the blood causing sepsis and to other organs resulting in multiple organ failure and death. The fact that PM Oli's immune system was compromised after the kidney transplant, doctors say, significantly increased the risk of sepsis and organ failure.
