The Bali Post reports that the mystery surrounding Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika’s extended hospital stay in Singapore from July 11 to August 5, 2012 has now been clarified.
While provincial officials originally described the hospitalization as a “routine medical check-up,” it has now been confirmed directly by Pastika that he underwent heart bypass surgery during his more than 3-week hospitalization at Singapore’s Mt. Elizabeth Hospital.
Accompanied by Deputy-governor AA Puspayoga, Mangku Pastika has shared with the press how he initially only went to Singapore for a routine check-up, something he had long-delayed due to his busy work schedule.
During the course of his check up, the Singapore doctors concluded the governor needed a heart bypass operation to ensure his heart received adequate supplies of blood.
Pastika told the press that the bypass operation went well and “according to the doctor he can live for another 20 years.”
