Brazilian football legend Pele has been rushed to hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil over swelling all over his body and decompensated heart failure issues.His health deteriorated after he was admitted to hospital in Sao Paulo with swelling all over his body.
Though the time Pele is going to stay at the Albert Einstein hospital is still sketchy ,he is currently undergoing treatment for metastatic cancer and taken to the hospital by his wife Marcia Aokoi and a carer .
Medical staff at the Einstein confirmed his condition as anasarca (general swelling), an edemigemic syndrome (general edema) and even identified ‘decompensated heart failure’.
Several tests will be taken for further assessment of the problems detected and the troubles with his organs which have been impacted by the metastatic cancer. Pele is also struggling to eat, while hospital medics are set to look at the likelihood of a hepatic encephalopathy – a nervous system disorder brought on by severe liver disease.
However, Pele’s daughter Kely Nascimento, has eased panic of the public, insisting there was no need for alarm and that there was no surprise or emergency involved with her father being in hospital.She posted on Instagram: ‘Lots of alarm in the media today concerning my dad’s health. He is in the hospital regulating medication.‘There is no emergency or new dire prediction. I will be there for New Years and promise to post some pictures.’
Although,officials at the hospital have not commented on his health, and while his wife Marcia did confirm the Brazil icon was in hospital, she implied it is only for his standard chemotherapy and check-ups.
