Doctors say Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro doesn’t require surgery for an intestinal obstruction
Bolsonaro was hospitalized Monday with an intestinal obstruction, which the statement said has been resolved, without providing details. The president will begin a liquid diet, and there isn’t yet an expected date for his discharge.
Bolsonaro, 66, has undergone four surgeries stemming from the abdominal stabbing he suffered during a 2018 campaign event.
At the time, he was operated on by Dr. Antônio Luiz Macedo, the same doctor who has treated him since.
