Yasmine Abdel Aziz had undergone surgery recently, but complications occurred with her that caused her health to deteriorate, which prompted her to travel to Switzerland to complete the treatment..
A medical source, who is among the team treating the Egyptian artist since the beginning of her illness and is still following her health condition, told Sky News Arabia that Yasmine Abdel Aziz will leave Switzerland within days, after performing delicate and difficult surgeries..
The source, who preferred not to be named, explained that the Egyptian artist was suffering from a perforation of the colon resulting in peritonitis, noting that her life was in danger, but after her travels to Switzerland, she underwent two very dangerous surgeries to get rid of the infection..
Regarding the nature of these operations, the source indicated that Yasmine performed the operation to close the perforation of the peritoneum, “adhesion of the abdominal membranes.” The peritoneum is the thin tissue that surrounds the abdomen and covers the abdominal organs, noting that the peritonitis was affecting the artist with fungi and bacteria that spread in separate areas of the body, which almost exposed her to death..
He added that Yasmine Abdel Aziz underwent another operation, a bypass surgery, to return the intestines to their normal course.
Return to Egypt within days
It is noteworthy that Yasmine’s health crisis began when she was performing a delicate and difficult operation to remove a large blood pool on the ovary, which required surgical intervention instead of an endoscope, but she suffered from some complications during the operation, which led to a swelling in the colon that resulted in perforation and leakage of its contents.
This, in turn, led to her infection with peritonitis, and then the Egyptian artist followed that with operations in Switzerland .
The artist, Ahmed Al-Awadi, the husband of Abdel Aziz, had announced during a television intervention that the artist would return within days to Egypt, and that she had become in good condition, after she traveled to Switzerland on a medically equipped plane to complete her treatment.
