Namir Back Home After Brain Surgery

Download PDF for this date

After undergoing successful brain surgery in Switzerland last month, Labor and Social Affairs Minister Ora Namir returned home to Israel on Sunday night.

Looking well as she disembarked without assistance from an E1 A1 plane, Namir said, “I hope to convalesce quickly and to return to work.”

She said that her Swiss doctors had expressed satisfaction with the operation, in which a tumor was removed from her brain. It was not reported whether the tumor was diagnosed as benign or malignant.

Namir said she still had problems with sight in one eye but said she had been assured this problem should clear up soon.

Namir said she would remain home under medical care for a week or so, and then gradually resume her duties.
