Tun Dr. Mahathir making progress in ICU

Former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad 82, who had his second coronary by-pass on 4 September and an open chest surgery for debridement last Saturday, continues to make progress even though he is still in ICU.

This is the IJN media statement, transmitted via Sufi Yusoff as at 5.26pm this evening:


Institut Jantung Negara, 28 September….


YABhg Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad continues to be warded at the Intensive Care Unit, five days into a second surgery for wound debridement last Saturday.


This is to allow doctors to closely monitor and observe his overall condition following admission for a second coronary bypass surgery on September 4.


While it may seem time consuming, doctors’ focus will be on improving his nutritional status and gradually strengthening his muscles.


IJN doctors are also concerned on ensuring that all his major organ functions remain stable for continued post surgical rehabilitation. 


IJN will continue to issue statements on Tun Dr Mahathir’s progress periodically.
