US First Lady Undergoes Kidney Surgery at Military Hospital

First Lady Melania Trump underwent surgery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in a kidney procedure her office announced Monday

The Slovenia-born first lady underwent an embolisation procedure on Tuesday morning to treat what aides called a "benign" kidney condition.

She will likely remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for the rest of the week.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, says that the embolization procedure that took place on Monday morning was successful and that there were no complications.

While there's no indication whether Mrs. Trump's procedure was an emergency or planned, LaPook said after this kind of procedure, it would not be at all unusual to keep her in the hospital for observation for a number of days.

Trump is the first presidential spouse to undergo a medical procedure of such gravity while in the White House since Nancy Reagan, who had a mastectomy in October 1987.

"The full lesion may not have been completely embolized and sometimes you need it done again", Brahmbhatt said. Two doctors who specialize in kidney health speculated that the procedure may have been to treat angiomyolipoma, a benign kidney tumor, detailed the Sacramento Bee.

There is news of the death of a person so far in violence, while more than 25 people, including 15 policemen, were injured. Appealing for peace, the NCP leader asked police to take local people in confidence while handling the tense situation.

"The treatment of choice" is to cut off the blood supply so the growth shrinks, added Dr. Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Embolization is generally described as the blockage of a blood vessel.

Most of the time, these benign tumors are found when people undergo medical scans for another reason, but sometimes people have pain or other symptoms, Kowalczyk said.

With the president watching, Mrs. Trump last week unveiled the "Be Best" campaign, which she said will focus on childhood well-being, social media use and opioid abuse.

"The doctors at Walter Reed are expecting a full recovery".

Thankfully, Melania's procedure was completed successfully without complications, and many are wishing her a speedy recovery.

A spokeswoman for the First Lady declined to offer more details on her condition, but said the 48-year-old is recovering.
