Nawaz Sharif post-operation recovery ‘on course’, says daughter

London : Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is recovering well from a heart bypass surgery, said his daughter Maryam Nawaz on Sunday.

“PM’s recovery on course. Was made to walk several times in the corridor during the day, and up and down a flight of stairs twice,” Maryam tweeted.

Sharif underwent a successful open-heart surgery at a London hospital and was moved to an intensive care unit in a stable condition on Tuesday. He is expected to return to Pakistan before the end of Ramazan, the Dawn quoted Maryam, as saying.

“Three of his arteries were blocked. It will take five or six days for the prime minister to get discharged from the hospital and we expect that he will return home in three to four weeks,” she said on Wednesday.

Following his surgery, the premier will be overseeing the affairs of government from London. (ANI)
