Sushma Swaraj’s kidney transplant likely next week

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj who has been undergoing treatment due to kidney ailments in AIIMS, is likely to undergo a transplant next week.

According to a report in TOI, its sources said the procedures that has to be done to be before a transplant has already completed.

The report added that a hospital official said Swaraj's vitals were stable and she was fit to undergo the life-saving procedure.


"Several people have come forward to donate their kidney. However, chances are that we'll use the one that has been offered by a relative," a senior doctor said.

On November, Swaraj had tweeted that she has been admitted in AIIMS, Delhi due to kidney failure and underwent tests for a transplant.

According to a FirstPost report, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will apoint a full-time foreign minister to replace an ailing Sushma Swaraj, who was admitted to hospital last month after kidney failure.
It is expected that the appointment and a few changes in portfolios might take place after the Winter Session of Parliament ends, the report said. Swaraj, who is awaiting kidney transplant, is expected to remain out of active duty for many months.
