Melania Trump undergoes embolisation procedure to treat 'benign kidney condition'

President Trump this afternoon spent more than an hour visiting with Melania after she underwent an embolization at Walter Reed medical center for what the White House is terming a benign kidney condition.

Dr Keith Kowalczyk, a urologist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, said that based on available information it appeared that Ms Trump was treated for a benign tumor known as an angiomyolipoma.

Melania Trump is the first to go through such a serious medical procedure since Nancy Regan who underwent a mastectomy. She said parents, teachers, and other adults can help prepare children for their futures by encouraging this behaviour.

She underwent the surgery at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda on Monday, New York Post reported. The minimally invasive procedure involves injecting tiny pieces of a special material through a catheter into one or more kidney vessels to cut off part of the blood supply.

According to Grisham, Melania trump will remain in the hospital until the end of the week. During the welcome ceremony leading up to the dinner, Melania Trump stole headlines, wearing a crisp white Michael Kors Collection suit with a matching white hat, custom-made by her personal couturier.

They eventually shifted to the White House in June 2017 and the FLOTUS now is being seen working on improving her public profile.

The former model from Slovenia is Trump's third wife, and the couple has been married for 13 years.

We may not know the extent of Melania's ailment, but we do wish her a speedy recovery!

The surgery was successful, according to the White House, but Melania will have to remain in the hospital the rest of hte week.

Trump is working on an anti-bullying campaign to teach children to behave with more consideration and kindness on social media. Rosalynn Carter underwent surgery to remove a benign lump from her breast in April 1977.

CNN interviewed its chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, to gain some insight into what was afflicting the First Lady. She and Barron moved into the White House last June.
