Queen discharged from hospital: March 4, 2013 – News n Analysis by Dr. Raj Baldev, Cosmo Theorist, on the health of Queen Elezabeth, and why doctors have discharged her from the hospital.
The Queen was taken to hospital since doctors wanted to check up and then prescribe treatment. She has now been assessed by the doctors and have permitted her to leave the hospital since her treatment can follow in palace.
The doctors found some gastroenteritis symptoms and did not prescribe any special treatment, which might follow now.
She had been at London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital since Sunday – her first hospital stay in 10 years. She has left hospital in central London after being assessed by doctors.
All official engagements for this week, including a visit to Rome, were either cancelled or postponed. She is also reported to have missed St David’s Day celebrations in Swansea.
Buckingham Palace said the Queen, 86, was admitted as a precaution and was otherwise in “good health”.
A Benley arrived to take the Queen to Buckingham Palace on Monday afternoon.
Dressed in a red coat and smiling, she shook hands with hospital staff on the steps outside.
BBC correspondent Daniela Relph said the Queen looked “in pretty good condition and pretty healthy” as she left.
But there was no sense that the cancellation of her official visits would change, she added.
What she missed:
On Saturday, the Queen had missed the military ceremony in Wales due to the stomach bug.
On Sunday, she was driven from Windsor Castle, where she had been resting, after carrying out a private medal presentation earlier in the day.
A spokesman for the Queen said she was in “good spirits” and her admission was “a precautionary measure”.
Gastroenteritis causes inflammation of the stomach lining and intestines.The infection can be transmitted through contact with an infected person or contaminated food and drink. Symptoms can include vomiting, fever and stomach ache.
Though the treatment of the queen is yet to be disclosed, she may have re hydration and tests to establish if the illness was caused by infection or could be by some other reasons.
