First Lady Melania Treated for Benign Kidney, Surgery Successful

First Lady Melania Treated for Benign Kidney, Surgery Successful

US President Donald Trump visited his wife, Melania, in the hospital Tuesday as she continues to recover from a kidney procedure.

Trump departed the White House on Marine One shortly after 4 p.m. and touched down at the military hospital in Bethesda, Md., roughly 10 minutes later.

White House officials say first lady Melania Trump is expected to remain hospitalized for the rest of the week following a "long-planned" procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.

The hospitalization comes as Melania Trump, 48, has taken a higher-profile role in the White House in recent weeks.


In fact, there were a total of three things on his schedule that morning, one of them being a one-hour lunch with Vice President Mike Pence. "They did a fantastic job". "Thank you for such love and support!" - wrote the President. In late April, she hosted her first state dinner in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, and attended the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush in Houston.

On Monday, the White House released a statement informing the operation to be successful. It is common to stay overnight after the procedure to treat the pain. "As her office has stated, the First Lady remains in good spirits".

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Trump's condition said the most likely explanation for the embolisation procedure is a type of noncancerous kidney tumour called an angiomyolipoma.

"An embolization procedure is typically done by an interventional radiologist who is used to injecting into a blood vessel", Dr. Agnes Schrader, a nephrologist with the Christian Medical and Dental Association, tells CBN News.
