The MP for Mukono Municipality Betty Bakireke Nambooze has said she is feeling much better after she was operated on last week.

Nambooze told Nile Post from India that the excruciating back pain had eased and she could now turn comfortably in bed.

“I am better than I was before the operation because I can now turn comfortably,” she said.

She said she will still need more additional time in India to monitor her situation.

However, she still cannot walk without the support of someone. She is confined to a wheel-chair.

Last Thursday, the legislator endured a 5-hour Laparoscopic Lumber Spine surgery.

The operation performed by accessing the backbone through a tinny hole drawn in the stomach and a pipe is extended through it with help of a camera.

Doctors at Manipal Spine Care Centre recommended such operation to avoid hurting her nerves, because another cut in the first scar would put her at a bigger risk.

Nambooze was brutally arrested last month by police following an opinion she authored in the wake of Ibrahim Abiriga’s death. Her health situation deteriorated under police watch and she was briefly admitted at Kiruddu hospital before flying to India.
