Jayalalithaa has completely recovered, Apollo Hospitals chairma
CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa has completely recovered and she understands what is going on around her, said Apollo Hospitals chairman Dr Prathap C Reddy on Friday.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event organised by the hospital here to launch a text book of medicine, Dr Reddy said: "She [Jayalalithaa] is now aware of what is happening around her. She asks and demands what she wants. We are happy to tell you she is well."
Replying to a question, he said: "When to go home is now a small thing. The decision will be made by her. The most important part of the treatment is that it is over and very successful."
"She is under control. She controls the doctors and nurses [when it comes to] what she and they should do... You know her nature very well. She understands herself very well. She will ask us very soon 'when I am going home.' It must be on top of her mind. It will not be too long before she sees you all," Dr Reddy said.
"It's a contribution not just by doctors, but nurses as well. It was a team work. We have given her world's best treatment," said Dr Reddy.
Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on September 22 with complaints of fever and dehydration. She was later put on respiratory support and treated with antibiotics for her infection and lung congestion. She was given passive physiotherapy.
A team of doctors from the UK and All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, joined the team of doctors at the Apollo Hospitals to treat her.
