Ahmad Zaki responding positively to chemotherapy
Egyptian doctor Yasser Abdul Kader, who is currently supervising the health condition of Egyptian prominent actor Ahmad Zaki has revealed that the actor is responding positively to the new phase of chemotherapy he is undergoing. The doctor added that Ahmad’s condition is stable, which indicates medical progress.
According to the Egyptian daily, Al Massa, with regards to the Chinese treatment the actor is also undergoing, Yasser stressed that he cannot determine the outcome at the current time. He added that samples of the Chinese treatment were sent for examination and the results have not yet returned.
Zaki had begun a new stage of cancer treatment by a group of Chinese doctors, who came especially to Cairo to give the actor a special dosage of medicine that has been proven to help heal lung cancer. The Chinese treatment will be composed of several phases, first concentrating on increasing the immunity of the actor to be able to response to his medication.
The doctors had stressed that several tests will be made to see the extent of success and improvement their medication has accomplished. The actor is also scheduled to return to Paris to undergo several tests and treatment after completing his sessions with the Chinese doctors, in addition to a session of chemotherapy.
Zaki has already completed several stages of chemotherapy, after which his doctors forbade any visitors into his room to avoid any over exhaustion. After each chemo dosage, the actor falls into a state of utter exhaustion and any little activity has a negative affect on his condition.
Recently, Zaki resolved a dispute that broke out between Egyptian actresses Yusra and Raghda while the two were visiting him. The two actresses had gotten into a severe argument at the hospital that called for the interference of the actor to make matters return to normal.
The fight broke out when Yusra entered the actor’s room in the hospital without knocking or requesting permission leading Raghda, who was already in the room to make comments of the disrespectful manner. Raghda had intentionally made rude remarks towards Yusra which led the latter to flee the room in anger. Despite the bad state Ahmad was in, he made it clear to Raghda that her manner in talking to Yusra was not polite and uncalled for.
Yusra’s anger grew and led her to talk to a number of her close friends of the impolite manner of Raghda. Ahmad felt that he had to interfere and finally made Raghda make a personal phone call to Yusra and apologize for her remarks. Despite Raghda’s apology, the two actresses remain on very formal terms and only exchange greetings when they accidentally run into one another. –Albawaba.com
