Sandro: Second medical report
Yesterday, our cherished Roberto Sanchez, aka Sandro, underwent surgery, after a distressing wait for a donor, in the Hospital Italiano in Mendoza. Director Miguel Nicolas reported that “the singer’s organism is adapting sucessfully to the new organs.” And that is necessary to be cautious during the following 72 hours, because there could be complications.”
During the 5 surgery, fans and followers prayed for Sandro’s health and sang some of his famous songs, like “Rosa, Rosa” or “Dame fuego”.
The donor was a young 22 year whose father authorized a multiple ablation.
The media had reported that the organs received by Sandro belonged to Pilar Chavez’ same donor, though this has been denied by health authorities.
Sandro’s plight resulted in an extensive campaign to raise awareness about organ donation.
At about 11.30 the doctors who operated Sandro turn up at the hospital and gave a chaotic press conference. Doctor Juan Antonio Mazzei said:
“Sandro is recovering as expected, though the previous surgeries he underwent made the operation more difficult. The aerodynamic parameters are stable, we must wait 7 days because they are considered critical. His evolution is good and he will remain in pharmacological coma.”
Dr. Sergio Perrone, began giving the same news as Dr. Mazzei, adding that he is not running a temperature, which is good, and they hope that he will continue stable. “We believe in miracles, his damaged artery was changed when the new heart was transplanted.” The amount of waiting days may vary according to his recovery. He was in the company of his wife and the lady’s two sons.
Doctor Claudio Burgos expressed that “so far he’s winning the battle”. There could be many complications, exptected or not, as he arrived to the operating room in a more deteriorated state from his last check up in Buenos Aires, but they are prepared for anything. He said that he moves, that breathing is stable and that they will keep him in pharmacological coma according to his recovery. It may or may not be before the 7 days stipulated. He had a good donor, and that’s positive for the patient.”
The next medical report will be given at 17:00
