Oli discharged from hospitalThe prime minister was admitted to Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre on Thursday after increased heart rate.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who was admitted to hospital on Thursday night for an increased heart rate, was discharged on Friday evening.
“The prime minister has been discharged from Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre after receiving urgent medical care,” Thapa told the Post. “He has already reached Baluwatar.”
Oli had undergone a second kidney transplant on March 4 at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. Oli is still taking immunosuppressants after the surgery. A high dose of immunosuppressant usually exposes a patient of kidney transplant to infection risks.
Oli, who is 69, had his first kidney transplant in 2007 in New Delhi, but his health only started to deteriorate in September-October last year, when his transplanted kidney began to show symptoms of dysfunction.
He was then immediately put under regular dialysis. Doctors had planned for a second kidney transplant but it had to be postponed after the prime minister underwent an appendectomy in November last year.
