Melania is 'doing really well' after kidney surgery

Stephen King Cracks Joke About Melania Trump's Hospitalization

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that his wife, Melania, is "doing really well" although she remains hospitalized following a medical procedure to treat a kidney condition the White House described as benign.

First lady Melania Trump underwent the procedure and will remain in the hospital for the week. "Will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days", Trump tweeted. "Thank you for so much love and support!" tweeted Mr. Trump.

Mrs. Trump, 48, had what is being called an "embolization procedure" to treat what the White House said is a "benign kidney condition", according to a release from the first lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham.

Melania, the Slovenian-born wife of US President Donald Trump, is expected to remain in hospital for the rest of the week.

He published an update on his Twitter feed.

The Dark Tower writer's screed came within hours of the news that Mrs. Melania had received treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a benign kidney condition.

She is the first USA first lady to undergo such a serious medical procedure while in the White House since Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy in October 1987.

Such a procedure is typically performed to cut off blood supply to a tumor, aneurysm or abnormal growth, typically growing in the kidney or liver, to shrink it. It is common to stay overnight after the procedure to treat the pain. Doctors do that with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it.

Such benign tumors often have no symptoms and are often found when people get medical scans for another reason. They have a 12-year-old son, Barron.

The Trumps and their marriage have been under scrutiny in recent months after revelations that a porn actress was paid $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about claims she had sex with Trump in 2006. Trump also denies the allegations from Karen McDougal. Her office said in a statement that there were no complications. She and Barron moved into the White House last June.
