Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos should cancel his plans to watch Friday’s soccer match between Colombia and Paraguay to not endanger his recovery from a prostate operation, said the head of state’s doctor Wednesday.
Santos’ doctor, Felipe Gomez, told the president that he must save his energy for recovery and avoid travel, including the upcoming 2014 World Cup qualifying match.
Gomez said he is happy with the speed of President Santos recovery stating that 7 days after the operation ”the postoperative course was quite satisfactory.”
The president plans to consult a medical team to determine if he can go to the soccer game although his doctor expressed that he should save his energy to fully recover.
According to Gomez, the president will be well enough to resume all activities both state and personal in about three weeks.
