President Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, who was admitted to hospital this week with a two-day intestinal blockage, said this Saturday that he suffers from “large hernia“Maybe” force him to go under the knife.
I have a large hernia on the right side. I may need a (surgical) mesh insertion. “The rest is all right,” the far-right president told reporters in Brasilia.
Can Bolsonaro, 66 years old high data Last Wednesday, after spending two days in a hospital in Sao Paulo due to an intestinal obstruction, a problem he has suffered since he was stabbed in the stomach during the 2018 election campaign.
The president interrupted his vacation in the southern state of Santa Catarina and urgently flew to Sao Paulo due to abdominal pain caused by intestinal obstruction, according to tests he underwent at the Villa Nova Star Hospital.

Doctors placed a catheter on him and he overcame the blockage with conservative treatment.
Bolsonaro suffered from the same problem in July 2021, when he was also admitted to the same hospital for a few days due to another intestinal obstruction for which he was also treated without the need for surgery.
The retired army captain insists that his health problems are the result of the stabbing of a mentally ill patient at a campaign event in 2018, the year he was elected president.
That attack, which Bolsonaro has accused the left about, has led to four abdominal surgeries since then.
This latest passage through the hospital comes at a time when the president has been receiving criticism from the opposition and the press for not going to areas affected by the severe floods that swept the northeast of the country and continuing his vacations.
