Ahmad Zaki heads to Paris for an assessment of his health
Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki is scheduled to travel to Paris-France in the upcoming two-weeks for an evaluation of his health condition. The actor will undergo several tests in Paris to see how much his health has improved since he began his first chemotherapy sessions four months ago.
According to the Egyptian based daily, Al Ahram, the upcoming days will also witness numerous tests on the actor, in which he will undergo complete x-rays of his entire body to see how advanced his health condition is.
Zaki’s health began improving gradually after a sudden downfall, and he is said to be returning to a somewhat normal life. The actor has decided to try and overcome his illness by always smiling and looking at it in an optimistic way.
Doctors supervising Ahmad’s condition along with his doctor in France decided to halt his chemotherapy sessions for a period of two months. Doctors revealed that they will resume chemotherapy in smaller dosages in order not to fatigue the actor.
In the meantime doctors will attempt to increase the immunity of the actor and improve his psychological state of mind. It was revealed that in order to obtain good results from the chemotherapy, the actor’s immune system must improve.
Suddenly and without prior notice, the health condition of Zaki had recently deteriorated forbidding him from going to hospital to undergo a new session of chemotherapy. The actor’s immune system grew to its weakest level and a red blood cell count in the hemoglobin showed they have decreased tremendously.
Ahmad’s doctors had refused to give out any further details regarding his condition and have also forbade all visitors and the media from seeing the actor. The doctors added that the only thing everyone could do for the actor was pray that God help him and he returns to normal.
Zaki had announced the innocence of his medical team from all the accusations of revealing his secrets regarding his health condition, which they have been attacked with recently. The actor stressed that he had asked one of his doctors to publicly announce the status of his health condition, in order not to open doors of assumptions by people.
The official spokesperson of the Egyptian medical association denied that investigations are being done with Ahmad’s medical team for spreading rumors regarding his health, reported the Al Watan daily. The head of Zaki’s medical team, Hassan Al Bana, who is supervising Ahmad’s health condition, had threatened to quit after three months of treating the actor for lung cancer. –Albawaba.com
