सर्जरी पछी आज पहिलो पटक प्रधानमन्त्रिज्यू सँग कुरा गर्ने अबसर मिल्यो। "साथिहरुलाई भनिदिनस, मेरो स्वास्थ्य तीब्र गतिमा सुधार भई रहेको छ। छिट्टै म काममा फर्किन्छु।"

धेरै खुशि लाग्यो,

शीघ्र स्वास्थ्यलाभको कामना प्रधानमन्त्रिज्यू!

PM Oli's health has continued to improve on the third day of his kidney transplantation. He had started liquid and soft diet from Thursday, indicating gradual improvement in his post operative condition.

Doctors at TUTH successfully completed the kidney transplant surgery on the Prime Minister on Wednesday. A team of medical professionals led by Dr Prem Raj Gyawali had performed the surgery. This is the second time that PM Oli underwent a kidney transplant. He had a renal transplant 12 years ago in India.

The Prime Minister’s kidney donor, a relative, is also known to be recovering well.
