Bengaluru: Doctors at Narayana Health City Bangalore have advised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to avoid speaking for a few days to recover from the throat surgery he underwent on Tuesday. He was suffering from chronic cough.

“The recovery for such a long-standing problem with its own functional accommodation will be gradual. Based on his recovery on Thursday, the doctors will advise him on when he can start talking,” a spokesperson at the hospital said.

According to doctors, the Delhi CM suffered from “an enlarged soft palate and uvula in relation to a slight increase in the volume of the tongue”.

The surgery involved correcting the small muscle at the roof of mouth of the AAP leader.

“The surgery involved correction of a significant septal spur and palato-pharyngeal (small muscle at the roof of the mouth) correction. There was repositioning of the tongue-base relationship along with the reorganisation of the chin area. The aim of the correction was functional restoration rather than that of a disease,” the hospital said.
