Guyana’s second kidney recipient, retired Major Winston George, remains in the High Dependency Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital recuperating after he had to be re-admitted because his body was not retaining any fluids.
Yesterday, George, surrounded by wife and other relatives, said that he is feeling much better and that his condition has changed in that he is retaining fluids. He said, though, that his blood sugar count is still high and doctors at the institution are closely monitoring that aspect.
He said that before the surgery he had never had any “sugar” problems. He now says that he is not sure if the medication is a contributing factor.
George’s wife, Lorraine, told this newspaper that she feels much better that her husband is improving. She said that ever since he was hospitalized there has been a visible change, which hints that he going to be recovering well.
“I just want them to keep my husband here until they know for sure that he is alright to be at home,” she explained.
The 47-year-old George was readmitted to the hospital last week after he began feeling weak and was hardly able to eat solid foods.
He was also experiencing a burning sensation in his mouth and was forced to urinate every time he consumed any liquid. After suffering from renal failure for a number of years, George was afforded a kidney from his 25-year-old daughter, Melissa George, an Immigration Officer, who is said to be doing well and is back on the job.
The operation, which represents the second such procedure to be conducted at the public hospital, was again conducted by New York-based doctor, Rahul Jindal.
