Nawaz undergoes multiple medical tests
LAHORE (92 News) – The Punjab government constituted another medical board to examine former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports as he underwent multiple medical tests, including CT scan and ultrasound on Sunday.
According to the details, a little stone was seen in the left kidney during CT scan. Doctors conducted his blood test and ultrasound. A member of the medical board, Dr Mehmood Ayaz, explained that further tests will be performed on Nawaz and that ex-PM’s health is satisfactory.
The medical board elaborated that examinations will also be performed by doctors from the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC).
The medical board will send its recommendations about the health of the former premier to the Interior Ministry. In the light of the recommendations, the decision on the future treatment of Nawaz Sharif will be made.
On the other hand, Maryam Nawaz along with her husband Cap Safdar and son Junaid Safdar paid a visit to her father Nawaz Sharif in hospital after he was shifted to Services Hospital by the Punjab government on the recommendation of a special medical board formed to monitor his health.
Maryam inquired the health of her father as well as provided the precautionary food.
Meanwhile, strict security arrangements were also being made to maintain law and order as additional police officials were deployed outside the hospital.
Earlier, two special medical boards of the Allama Iqbal Medical College/Jinnah Hospital, Lahore, and the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), Lahore, examined Nawaz at the jail. The AIMC/Jinnah Hospital board had recommended that Nawaz should be shifted to hospital for “optimal treatment”.
However, the government, instead, had opted for the constitution of the third board, comprising army doctors. The board after a thorough examination had recommended the government to shift Nawaz to the hospital.
Subsequently, the medical committee had recommended Nawaz be shifted to a hospital so a kidney specialist and diabetologist could perform examinations. Further, a doctor familiar with Nawaz’s medical reports said that the former premier’s life could be in danger due to the health issue.
Earlier, former prime minister’s personal doctor Dr Adnan Khan had warned that any advertent or inadvertent delay in the treatment of former prime minister can seriously jeopardize his health.
The former three-time prime minister has been serving seven-year jail term after his conviction in Al-Aziza Steel Mills case. His bail plea is pending before the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
