The Argentine football legend is still not allowed to leave the hospital after his operation due to a brain hemorrhage. This was decided by his personal doctor.
Diego Maradona is expected to remain in hospital after an operation due to a brain hemorrhage, according to a decision by his doctor and family. “He wants to go, but he will stay. This was a common decision, ”his personal doctor Leopoldo Luque told reporters upon arrival at the Olivos clinic north of Buenos Aires on Friday, where Maradona was being treated. “That was one of the few times Diego heard a no.”
Maradona will be hospitalized after having suffered several “episodes of confusion” due to forced abstinence. “Diego is very difficult, very difficult,” added Luque. “You can’t imagine. Let’s try to be stronger than him. ”Maradona has repeatedly struggled with addiction problems due to alcohol and drugs.
Test for possible dehydration
On Tuesday, Luque had operated on the 1986 football world champion for a subdural hematoma. This is a hemorrhage between the hard meninges and the brain. According to his team of doctors, the operation was successful.
Maradona was taken to a La Plata hospital on Monday, just days after his 60th birthday. Initially it was only about emotional stress, anemia and dehydration. During testing, the bleeding was discovered in the Argentine football legend.
