CFK leaves Favaloro after routine tests: 'The president is doing well'
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner tonight left the Fundación Favaloro clinic after undergoing routine checks on her recovery following surgery, with spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro informing that the head of state "is doing very well".
"The president is doing very well, she is recovering," the communications chief revealed from outside the Monserrat facility, as Cristina exited the Favaloro following tests. A subsequent medical report from the institution informed that she was experiencing "a normal post-op period."
The president underwent brain surgery two weeks ago after she was diagnosed with a brain subdural hematoma.
Fernández de Kirchner was discharged from hospital last week and remains at the presidential Olivos residency with her closest relatives, her son Máximo and her daughter Florencia.
Following strict medical orders, the 60-year-old leader will not fly to the Santa Cruz province to cast her vote on Sunday. Not being authorized to take a plane, she will not be able to visit the Mausoleum of Néstor Kirchner in the Southern city of Río Gallegos on October 27, marking the third anniversary of the passing of husband and ex president of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner.
