Stabbed Brazilian presidential candidate undergoes second corrective surgery

Seriously stabbed far-right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro has reportedly undergone a second surgery to repair adhesions in his intestinal walls, according to doctors treating him.

The Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo where Bolsonaro is being treated said in a statement that the candidate’s abdomen became increasingly distended in recent hours and he was nauseated.

A tomography indicated that an adhesion of the small intestinal walls had obstructed them. The surgery successfully repaired the obstruction.

The latest operation is coming a week after he was initially operated upon to address a perforated liver with Dr Luiz Henrique Borsato who operated on him saying it could take Bolsonaro two months to fully recover.

Recall that Bolsonaro who was campaigning with his supporters close to a philanthropic cancer hospital was last week stabbed in the lower part of his stomach by an unidentified attacker.

The assailant was later arrested while the victim was immediately taken to a hospital for emergency surgery.
