    “The president is well, does not present pain or any other complication” and is “in stable condition”, said the doctor of the Hospital La Católica, Mario González.

    The surgical procedure is called a transvecical adenomectomy and involves removing part of the prostate through the bladder. Solis suffered from a benign enlargement of the prostate that was detected in the medical checkups to which he undergoes periodic.

    The president will be in recovery for at least 2 weeks, a period during which the Presidency is held by the 1st Vice President, Helio Fallas.

    Solis delayed the operation a few days in order to deal with the emergency caused by the tropical storm Nate in Costa Rica.
