Bolsonaro presents a good evolution and retakes the oral diet after operation

The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, presents good clinical evolution, so doctors decided on Friday to receive a liquid diet again after the abdominal operation he was subjected to last Sunday, the fourth since he suffered a stab in a electoral rally

The president remains "without pain, without fever and with a marked improvement in bowel movements," according to the latest newsletter of the Vila Nova Star Hospital, a private medical center in Sao Paulo where he has been held since Saturday.

The doctors removed the nasogastric tube and reintroduced a liquid diet, which had been suspended last Monday after the bowel movements of the head of state became slower and he registered an "abdominal distension" after the operation.

The president, 64, continues with respiratory and motor physiotherapy, "wandering the halls" and with restricted visits, says the bulletin.

Bolsonaro was subjected to his fourth operation on Sunday since he was stabbed on September 6, 2018 while being carried on his shoulders by a crowd in the town of Juiz de Fora, in the state of Minas Gerais (southeast).

The head of state planned to resume his duties today, but doctors determined the day before to postpone his return to work at least until next Tuesday, when he could resume his activities from an office in the hospital, while waiting for discharge.

While he was admitted, Bolsonaro did not miss Thursday afternoon at his weekly appointment on social networks and made a live show of just three minutes in which he reviewed some questions of the Government and told about the visit of the doctor who, according to him, saved him Life "a year ago.

Luis Enrique Borsatti was the head of the medical team that on September 6 attended Bolsonaro at the Santa Casa de Juiz de Fora public hospital, where he suffered an attack perpetrated by a man with mental problems.

The first two operations were carried out when the ultra-rightist leader was still in the electoral campaign and the third, for the withdrawal of a colostomy bag, in January, a few days after assuming the mandate.

Sunday surgery was aimed at correcting a hernia caused by muscle weakening caused by the three previous surgeries in the abdomen.
