The health condition of senior orthopaedic surgeon Dr Govinda KC, who was rushed to Kathmandu on Friday following his deteriorating health, is improving.

According to doctors involved in his treatment, Dr KC’s blood pressure is stable and his oxygen saturation is being maintained with supplemental oxygen. His blood magnesium level is low and urine acetone is positive.

According to Dr Pramesh Shrestha, a member of Dr KC’s medical team, he is complaining of muscle cramps and generalised weakness. “We are constantly supervising his health status as he may need emergency medical intervention if undue complication arises,” he said.
