PAKISTAN’S prime minister Nawaz Sharif is “going back home” after successfully undergoing open heart surgery in London, his daughter said on Mon- day (6).
“Doctors satisfied with PM’s progress and latest reports. All being well, Insha’Allah PM will be discharged this afternoon,” Maryam Nawaz Sharif said on Twitter.
“PM going back home,” she wrote in a second tweet.
The tweets did not clarify whether Sharif had actually been discharged from hospital or when he would be returning to Pakistan.
It was the 66-year- old’s second major cardiac medical procedure in five years.
His daughter last week tweeted to her almost two million followers that the surgery had been successful.
She also posted a picture of Sharif lying in an intensive care unit bed with his eyes closed and said he was “stable”. The London hospital where the procedure was carried out has not been officially named.
Sharif’s surgery lasted around four hours.
