Kumaraswamy will be back in action in 2 months: Doctor
Bangalore, Dec 20 (UNI) Even an open heart surgery, which he underwent today, will not stop the effervescent former Janata Dal(S) H D Kumaraswamy from 'indulging' in hectic political activities with mid-term elections to state assembly round the corner.
Doctors at Wockhardt hospital, where he underwent the operation, today said that the former Chief Minister would be back in action within two months.
With the fall BJP-led coalition government in Karnataka after JD(S) withdrew its support, the state will witness the mid-term assembly polls early next year.
Mr Kumaraswamy's health problems had come like a bolt from the blue for the workers of the troubled party, which was seen in poor light after it went back on the political pact by refusing to extend support to erstwhile coalition partner BJP.
Dr Vivek Jawali, Chief Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon of Wockhardt Hospital said the young leader needed to stay hospital for just one week and would rest at home for the next three weeks.
"This man is amazing. He was stable and composed, despite undergoing a open heart surgery, and he is also fearless. Soon after the operation he started asking questions. He asked me how long he had to stay in hospital and how soon he could resume his political activities," the doctor said.
Dr Jawali said Mr Kumaraswamy could resume his 'robust' life in soon and he could be seen in his party office with a month. "He would be able to travel in two month's time and he will come to the stage soon when he would be able to take up hectic poll campaigning," he said.
He said though Mr Kumaraswamy is a diabetic, the ECG and blood sugar levels were normal at present.
Dr Manjunath also felt that the former Chief Minister will be a fitter person than before as there would be no stress on his heart any more.
"Now he need not fear for his health. However he should consume food with less fat and restrict red meat. Fish and chicken will be no problem. However, no one should stick to 24x7 schedule as it is not good for even a person with best health conditions," he added.
