After being diagnosed with erosive gastritis during his official visit to Indonesia, already back in the country, Alberto Fernandez will undergo a endoscopy. The intervention is scheduled for 11 in the morning, while his environment oscillates between concern and attempts to convey calm about the state of health of the president.

“The President of the Nation, Doctor D. Alberto Ángel Fernández, will carry out the corresponding endoscopic controls on Saturday, November 19 of this year, after having suffered digestive bleeding due to erosive gastritis. Public opinion will be kept informed of the medical evolution of the President’s health,” they officially communicated from the Presidency.

The President will be examined at a private Buenos Aires medical center hours after his return from Madrid, where he made a stopover on the long return from the Asian continent. Alberto Fernández flew sixteen hours from Bali to the capital of Spain, where he kept up, against medical indications, the activity he had planned: a meeting with Yolanda Díaz Pérez, second vice president of the government of Pedro Sánchez. It was his last action before flying to Buenos Aires.

This Saturday’s endoscopy will be the second to be performed this week. The first had taken place in Indonesia, on Tuesday, after he was diagnosed with the health problem that was later reported by the Presidential Medical Unit. The alarm went off when Alberto Fernández fainted twice, the product of an episode of hypotension and dizziness, before the G20 global summit began. And for that reason he had to be transferred in an official ambulance, provided by the Indonesian government, to the local General Sanglah hospital, where they did the study that showed red dots on the stomach walls. The Minister of Health, Budi Gunadi Sadikin, accompanied the Argentine doctor Manuel Estigarribia, and made himself available.

“On the day of the date the President of the Nation, Dr. Alberto Ángel Fernández was medically evaluated, an erosive gastritis with signs of bleeding was diagnosed, He received the appropriate medical treatment, being in good health and resuming his activities with medical supervision,” the report from the Medical Unit said at the time. as he posted infobae, a member of the entourage described what happened to Alberto Fernández as “a complicated episode.” “He bled a lot and that caused him to decompensate,” he explained.

After that study, the head of state ignored the indications of the specialists, who recommended that he return to the country as soon as possible and rest. Instead, he kept in force the audience that he had arranged with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, within the framework of the G20, and then attended the unexpected meeting with the head of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva. He undertook the return on Thursday, as scheduled, along with the rest of the entourage, made up of Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero, the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, the spokeswoman Gabriela Cerrutti, the Secretary General of the Presidency, Julio Vitobello, the deputy chief of staff, Juan Manuel Olmos, the Secretary of Energy, Flavia Royón, and the Chief of Staff of the Foreign Ministry, Luciana de Titto.

In recent days, the President told the doctors that he will lower his stress levels, which cause the symptoms, and that he will rest more and take care of his diet.. He also publicly thanked the messages of support he received in different ways.

“This morning I had a decompensation due to erosive gastritis, which caused bleeding that caused a significant drop in pressure. To verify the exact level of bleeding, we went to a hospital in Bali for the sole purpose of performing an endoscopy. When we finished that we made a little bit of time for the meeting with Xi Jinping, where he definitely wanted to be. I thank you all for your concern, I’m fine, I’m working well, ”he assured at the time.

During the day on Friday, after the flight from Madrid, Alberto Fernández stayed in the presidential villa in Olivos, where he rested, but where he also received the Minister of Social Development, Victoria Toulouse Peace, for two hours, to learn about the irregularities detected in the Empower Work plan that the official later detailed in a conference at Casa Rosada. This Saturday attention will be focused on the results of the endoscopy to which the President will undergo to delve into the reasons that generated the gastritis picture.
