President Trump Flies Again to Recovering Wife Melania's Side

Kidney embolization: What was Melania Trump's surgery for? Trump says first lady doing 'really well,' will leave hospital in days

"As her office has stated, the first lady remains in good spirits", Walters said in a statement.

First lady Melania Trump checked into Walter Reed on Monday morning for an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition, the first lady's office said Monday afternoon.

Stephanie Grisham, communication director for Melania Trump, said the "procedure was successful and there were no complications". "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery". The outlet also reported that President Donald Trump remained at the White House during his wife's surgery, but that he's expected to visit the hospital soon.

In embolization, doctors insert a catheter as part of a procedure to purposely block a blood vessel and cut off the blood supply to the affected area. She also attended a ceremony for Military Mothers and Spouses in the White House East Room on May 11.

Most of the time, these benign tumors are found when people undergo medical scans for another reason, but sometimes people have pain or other symptoms, Kowalczyk said.




"Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania".

A Slovenia-born former model, Melania married Trump in 2005.

The 48-year-old first lady had an "embolization" procedure Monday at the military hospital outside Washington. She will leave the hospital in 2 or 3 days.

With the president watching, Mrs. Trump last week unveiled the "Be Best" campaign, which she said will focus on childhood well-being, social media use and opioid abuse. Trump has acknowledged reimbursing his lawyer for the payment to porn star Stormy Daniels but denies her allegations.

The White House has not offered any additional information about her condition, citing her privacy.
