Melania Trump undergoes surgery for ‘benign kidney condition’

US First Lady Melania Trump has undergone surgery for what the White House described as a "benign kidney condition" and was expected to remain hospitalised for the rest of the week

 Washington: Melania Trump underwent a medical procedure on Monday morning to treat what the White House called a “benign kidney condition” and was reported to be recovering without trouble at a military hospital outside the capital.

“The procedure was successful and there were no complications,” the White House said in a statement. “Mrs Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere.”

US First Lady Melania Trump was expected to remain hospitalised for the rest of the week. Surgeons had performed an embolisation procedure on her at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center yesterday. Embolisation is most often used to block the blood supply to a tumour, benign or cancerous.

 

In the late afternoon, the president flew by helicopter to Walter Reed to visit the first lady for about an hour before returning to the White House.

Melania Trump, 48, is expected to spend the rest of the week recovering at the medical centre, in Bethesda, Maryland.

In 2001, she became a permanent resident of the United States. She married Donald Trump in 2005 and obtained U.S. citizenship in 2006. She is the first naturalized US citizen to become First Lady of the United States. She began modelling as five years old and started doing commercials at sixteen.
