New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who underwent a kidney transplant on December 10, will be discharged from the All India Insititute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi on Monday.
64-year-old Swaraj, who has been in and out of the hospital for last few months, was admitted to AIIMS on November 7.
On November 16, 64-year-old Swaraj had tweeted that she was in AIIMS because of kidney failure.
"I am in AIIMS because of kidney failure. Presently, I am on dialysis. I am undergoing tests for a kidney transplant.
"Lord Krishna will bless," Swaraj had tweeted.
As no suitable donor was found among her blood relations, a willing unrelated donor was arranged and the transplant procedure was carried out on December 10 by a team of AIIMS specialists.
As Swaraj has been showing steady recovery, doctors decided to discharge her from the hospital.
But the External Affairs Minister has been active for most part of her hospital stay. Recuperating after a kidney transplant, continued to promptly respond to pleas for helping Indians abroad — this time from a family which is unable to bring back the mortal remains of a member who died in Tokyo.
