USA first lady Melania Trump undergoes kidney surgery

United States first lady Melania Trump has had a "long-planned" hospital procedure to treat a benign kidney condition, the White House has said in a statement. "They did a fantastic job", Trump added.

"Melania is doing really well".

Trump is speaking at the 37th annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service in Washington. The ceremony at a police memorial near the Capitol was broadcast live on cable TV. "The fact that she's in the hospital for [the remainder of the] week says to me there's a little more to the story", he said.

Melania Trump is the first to go through such a serious medical procedure since Nancy Regan who underwent a mastectomy.

Kidney embolization procedures are fairly routine and can cause minor complications, such as a fever or pain at the injection site, according to Fox News. "The doctors were incredible. Wishing @Flotus a full and speedy recovery".

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.

The White House made the announcement less than an hour after former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's family said the lawmaker underwent cancer surgery earlier Monday.

Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt, urologist at Orlando Health in Florida, said, the most common condition he would use an embolization procedure for would be "something called angiomyolipoma, which is basically a benign growth of the kidney that has some fat in it and some cystic components".

"It does tend to happen more in women than in men and it tends to be in middle age", LaPook said.

However, not everyone was able to be their best and set aside their partisan hatred of President Trump during Mrs. Trump's illness. Doctors do that with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it. In case, a sedation is needed, patients are mostly given a general anaesthetic.
