New Delhi: External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday was discharged from AIIMS, after undergoing a kidney transplant surgery. According to the statement issued by the hospital, Ms Swaraj who underwent kidney transplant operation on December 10, has shown steady recovery.

“Her postoperative recovery was closely monitored by a team of transplant surgeons, physicians (nephrologist, cardiologist, endocrinologist, pulmonologist) and anaesthesist critical care expert, physiotherapist, resident doctors and specialised transplant nurses,” said the hospital in statement.

 

Ms Swaraj underwent a kidney transplant at AIIMS, with the organ being harvested from a living unrelated donor. The surgery, which lasted for over five hours, was conducted by a team of 50 personnel. The Kidney was donated by a woman who is in her 40s and not related to the union minister.

Living, unrelated donor could be anyone who is emotionally attached to the recipient, such as friend, a relative, a neighbour or an in-law.

As no suitable donor was available in the immediate family, the transplant was done with the kidney from a living unrelated donor.

On November 16, Swaraj had tweeted that she was in AIIMS because of kidney failure. “I am in AIIMS because of kidney failure. Presently, I am on dialysis. I am undergoing tests for a kidney transplant. Lord Krishna will bless,” Ms Swaraj had tweeted.
