New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi was discharged from Delhi's Ganga Ram Hospital on Sunday morning after 11 days, a news agency reported. "Mrs Sonia Gandhi has shown progressive improvement in her condition and has no fever," said DS Rana, chairman of Ganga Ram, on Saturday.
The leader was admitted to the hospital on August 3 afternoon with fever, dehydration and shoulder injury. "Ms. Sonia Gandhi's medical condition at the time of discharge from the hospital is stable," said a health update provided by the Hospital. Ms. Gandhi was admitted under the care of Dr. Arup Basu senior consultant, Department of Pulmonology and Chest Medicine and his team.
She was operated for shoulder injury at the hospital by Dr. Prateek Gupta, senior consultant and his team from Department of Orthopaedics and Dr. Sanjay Desai from Mumbai. “She had dislocated and fractured her left shoulder in a fall, and we relocated the ball and fixed the fracture using plates and screws.
She has been put on a physiotherapy regime to ensure a full healing,” said a hospital source. Ms. Gandhi was shifted from the Army Research & Referral hospital to the Sir Ganga Ram hospital earlier this month.
Ms. Gandhi, who was in Varanasi at the begining of the month to lead a Congress road show, had to be flown back to Delhi after she fell ill. She had dropped out of the road show after her illness. Her condition was adversely affected because of the hectic schedule.
