First Lady Melania Trump Just Had Kidney Surgery

Trump says Melania is 'doing really well' as she remains in hospital after kidney treatment

The White House did not offer any additional details on Mrs. Trump's condition, though Vice President Mike Pence described the procedure as "long planned" as he opened a speech at an evening event celebrating Israel's independence.

Trump said the first lady is "doing really well" and that he expected her back at the White House before the end of the week.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that his wife, Melania, is "doing really well" as she is recovering from a medical procedure to treat a kidney condition. "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery".

An embolization is a minimally invasive treatment that blocks one or more blood vessels or abnormal vascular channels.




The most likely reason for such a procedure is to treat a benign tumor known as an angiomyolipoma, according to Mohamad Allaf, vice chairman of the urology department at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She's watching us right now. "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" he wrote on Twitter.

President Trump spoke with his wife before the procedure and talked to the doctor after it was completed. Some patients do not react well to the embolization itself and doctors may be keeping the first lady there as a precaution, he said.

After all, he is the President of the United States and has a jam-packed schedule.

Trump later tweeted while he was on his way to the hospital at 5pm on Monday, however it appears he didn't have the most hectic of days before jumping on Marine One. But both made a point of displaying affection during last week's Rose Garden event where she announced the "Be Best" initiative.
