LONDON: As former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif continues to undergo a range of tests for his cardiac and haematology complications, his family on Wednesday remained anxious about the results of one specific medical report.

“The most important right now is his bone marrow test,” his son Hussein Nawaz said to reporters. “My request is that everyone prays for his health,” he added.

Bone marrow testing can reveal whether an individual’s bone marrow is healthy and making normal amounts of blood cells. Doctors use these procedures to diagnose and monitor blood and marrow diseases, including some cancers. Nawaz’s low platelet count condition, known as thrombocytopenia, has prompted doctors to test his bone marrow sample.

Hussein added that Nawaz’s treatment and diagnosis are ongoing, and that doctors in the United Kingdom have a standard process they follow prior to diagnosis and hospitalisation.

“Personally, I feel he should go to one specialist hospital in America to have his multiple ailments treated. I have spoken to Mian sb about this several times. But it is premature for him to decide anything right now because the tests are still ongoing here in London,” Hussein added.

Last week, Nawaz Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan Khan said that he will be hospitalised in the coming days to undergo an angiogram which will be followed by a heart procedure.

He added that after the angiogram, it is likely that the doctor will suggest a procedure for the heart and carotid artery. However, Dr Khan said Mr Sharif’s immune disorder must be addressed before any procedure.
