By M Zulqernain

Lahore/London, Sep 9 (PTI) Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of Pakistans ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, today underwent a second surgery in London in connection with her throat cancer.

She had undergone her first surgery for early-stage lymphoma last week.

Sharif and his sons — Hasan and Hussain — remained in hospital in London during the second surgery. They appealed for prayers and for the fast recovery of Kulsoom.

Although, the ruling PML-N had declared her first surgery successful, doctors have suggested more surgeries. The PML-N also declared todays surgery “successful”.

Sharif, who was supposed to return last Friday, has extended his stay because of the condition of his wife.

“Nawaz Sharif will only return after his wifes health improves,” Senator Pervaiz Rashid, a close aide of Sharif, said.

“Mian Sahib will wait for some more reports before deciding about his date of return to Pakistan,” Rashid said.
