King Harald has to undergo heart surgery

As I said in King Harald and Queen Sonja thread, king Harald has to undergo heart surgery. His condition is called aortastenose. The doctors says it's not serious, and that the surgery will take 3 hours. The King will have a quiet easter on doctors orders, and not strain himself.

The king will start physiotherapy straight after the surgery. The faulty flap will be exchanged for a metal one. The king has been followed by doctors for this condition for years, but after his cancer they have checked up on it more often. And for a recent check up the doctors noticed a change in his condition, and they found it necessary to do the surgery now. It is a preventive surgery, because the condition can worsen without it.

The Crown Prince will act as regent for the two months the king will be on sick leave. The king will have to miss some of the centennial celebrations, but the Crown Prince couple and the queen will attend. But he will be healthy again to start the sailing season this summer.

From the newspapers.

www.dagbladet.no

DETTE SKRIVER SLOTTET: «Under en rutinekontroll på Rikshospitalet tirsdag 15. mars 2005 ble det konstatert at det er inntruffet en endring i Hans Majestet Kongens helsetilstand.

Kongen er gjennom mange år blitt kontrollert for en klaffefeil som består i en tranghet i klaffen mellom hjertet og hovedpulsåren, såkalt aortastenose.

Denne trangheten har økt meget langsomt, og har ikke plaget ham. Kongens tilstand har vært fulgt nøye.

Da Kongen ble operert for blærekreft i desember 2003, var klaffefeilen fortsatt moderat og uten betydning for inngrepet. Siste rutinekontroll viste imidlertid at trangheten i klaffen nå er blitt høygradig, og Kongens kondisjon er tydelig blitt redusert, selv om han ikke føler seg syk.

Denne klaffefeilen har fulgt et helt vanlig utviklingsmønster. Når slike klaffefeil begynner å gi plager, er det alminnelig enighet om at tidspunktet for kirurgisk behandling er kommet. Legene ved Rikshospitalet har besluttet at Kongen skal opereres like over påske.

Inngrepet vil bli utført av et team ledet av professor dr. med. Odd Geiran ved Rikshospitalets Thoraxkirurgisk avdeling.

Kongen blir liggende på sykehuset i ca. to uker i forbindelse med inngrepet. Legene regner med at Kongen vil være i funksjon om ca. to måneder.

Informasjon rundt Kongens sykefravær blir ivaretatt av Det Kongelige Hoff i samarbeid med behandlende leger. Det Kongelige Hoff vil jevnlig sende ut bulletiner om Kongens helse.


Kronprinsen regent
I den tiden Hans Majestet Kongen er syk vil Hans Kongelige Høyhet Kronprinsen være Regent, i henhold til Grunnlovens § 41.

Det vil bli endringer i Kongefamiliens offisielle program. Endringene blir kunngjort på www.kongehuset.no


Påsken
Endringen i Kongens helsetilstand medfører at Kongefamilien ikke kommer til å tilbringe påsken i Sikkilsdalen. Kongeparet oppholder seg i påsken på Kongsseteren.»

Poor King Harald and the whole Royal Family! The previous heart problems, then cancer, and now this... It just doesn't seem to be an end for these unfortunate things, it must be terrible, the family must be really worried.

Crown Prince Haakon will get two more months of "King training".

It was said on the pressconference that the King and the royal family took the news well. And I think they might have known this day would come, since the king has had this condition for some years. Just found out that he will be in hospital for 2 weeks after his surgery. And the doctors said that they had no reason to expect anything other than a successful operation. And the king is in good shape too, after his last surgery and since he quit smoking.

Thank you for posting this GrandDuchess! I tried to find the English version of Aftenposten on the web, but I couldn't! Perhaps I was looking too early, and they hadn't written it yet :) Could you tell me how to find the English version of the paper?

KikkiB, go to the Aftenposten website and look to the left, where they have the news sections "Inneriks, Utenriks...." Look at the bottom of the list, "News in English" is 5th from the bottom.

My Best Wishes to His Majesty, King Harald!

I wish His Majesty a successsful operation and speedy recovery!!

I hope His Majesty does not try to rush his recovery. This is serious business--my mother went through this. You don't just get up after 2 weeks and resume your normal life.

i hope that the operation will be a succesful one without many complications.
i'm sure that the king will be in the best of hands, and we'll see him going out and about during the summer months.

King Harald will meet at the hospital tomorrow at nine o'clock where he will undergo surgery at Friday, says the Palace. They will atempt to be as open as possible about the whole thing, whilst protecting King Harald's rights as a patient.

some more pics from colourpress....

King Harald arrives at Rikshospitalet for cardiac-surgeryProfessor Odd Geiran og professor Jan L. Svennevig welcomed Norwegian King Harald at Rikshospitalet today, where the king will undergo cardiac surgery. The king suffers from a valvular defect and will be at Rikshospitalet in Oslo for at least 2 weeks. In december 2003 the king had underwent surgery for bladder-cancer, from which he seems to have recovered.
