Cristina Fernandez will resume her official duties as Argentine President next Monday — 41 days after undergoing surgery to remove a brain clot, MercoPress reported
. But she has not yet been cleared to fly, officials said.
Presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro said Tuesday Fernandez would continue to receive secondary medical tests including brain scans, and she is scheduled for a detailed X-ray examination Dec. 9 to see if she can withstand the rigors of flight.
A brief medical report on her condition showed Fernandez was in good cardiovascular condition and did not have a significant arrythymia, defined by the Mayo Clinic
as heart rhythm problems which occur “when the electrical impulses in your heart that coordinate your heartbeats don't work properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.”
Fernandez has approximately two years remaining in her current term, her second term as president.
