Gloria returns to surgery

Before surgery. 

Not even the country’s best health care can save ex-President and now-Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from a botched surgery.

A known work-nut, the first thing CGMA did was work which pretty much made her five-hour cervical spine surgery last August 5 useless. She was rushed back to the St. Luke’s Hospital after complaining of severe pain in the neck and shoulders.

For some, this is vindication for the sufferings the 64-year-old ex-Head of State needs to suffer upon. She hasn’t been cleared of all the graft and corruption that happened in her regime. Hell, our current president, President Noynoy Aquino, could end his term contented by merely disclosing all the abnormalities of her administration.

So more than two decades of carrying the political burden (and her family) on her back has literally made her back unstable? Well that sucks. This development forced the doctors to do an emergency surgery to remove the dislocated titanium implants on her backbone. Afterwards they will try to re-do the cervical spine surgery and the doctors have advise whoever is in charge in CGMA’s daily activities to shut her doors for most likely a month.

Hopefully the second operation wouldn’t unearth more insane damages.

Maybe she can go to India.

They have a bunch of awesome medical practitioners in those regions.

Maybe she’s familiar with that beautiful documentary called “The Dentist of Jaipur”?

Game over.
