CaribWorldNews, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. May 8, 2009: Guyana opposition leader, Robert H. O. Corbin, was late Thursday recovering from surgery at a New York hospital.
The surgery comes following his initial hospitalization at the St. Francis Hospital, Heart Center, in Long Island, NY following his arrival in New York on April 27th.
Last yesterday, a People’s National Congress Reform statement said Corbin was under post operative care, and his doctors have expressed optimism for his full recovery after surgery. The PNCR did not give details of the reason for the surgery but said the party leader is expected to be discharged from hospital shortly.
Corbin has been subjected to several tests, evaluation and medical procedures, including angiography, since April 27th.
Corbin was rushed to the Woodlands Hospital in Guyana on April 25th after suffering chest pains. He was later transferred to the Georgetown Hospital before being medi-vacced to New York. It is reported he is suffering from angina, or chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart muscle does not get enough blood.
