External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who underwent a kidney transplant three days ago, was on Tuesday shifted out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), said AIIMS officials, adding that her post operative recovery is being closely monitored.
“She has been shifted out of the ICU to a private ward of the cardio-neuro Centre. Her post-surgery recovery is on expected lines. Her recovery is being closely monitored by a team of transplant surgeons, physicians (endocrinologist, nephrologist, cardiologist and pulmonologist) and anaesthesist besides critical care expert, physiotherapist and transplant specialists,” AIIMS Director Dr M C Misra said.
Swaraj’s surgery, conducted by a team of 50 professionals, lasted nearly six hours. She is expected to be hospitalised for at least 10 days, the official added.
