Melania Trump in hospital after kidney surgery

Melania Trump hospitalized after kidney surgery

First lady Melania Trump underwent kidney surgery Monday and is expected to remain hospitalized for several days, her spokeswoman said.

According to a statement from her office, the first lady had been experiencing an issue with her kidney that required medical treatment.

"When I hear benign kidney condition, most of the time, you're thinking a cyst and a cyst is basically a fluid-filled structure that can sometimes develop on top of the kidney, or within the kidney", Gupta said. "She is in good spirits", the president also said, adding, "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!"

While many details of the first lady's condition are not publicly known, CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook explained the procedure in general terms.

"Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania", Trump tweeted.

He then called 999 and waited at the scene to direct the emergency services to the crash site. It was found about 2km from the airfield in bogland after a search by emergency services.

They're not common but tend to occur in middle-aged women, and if they become large enough, they can cause problematic bleeding, said Dr. Keith Kowalczyk of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. "[Doctors] put some substance into an artery that's feeding whatever this benign condition is that they're treating and then that cuts off the blood supply, cuts off the oxygen and whatever they're treating would presumably shrink and start to be less important than it was before". Doctors do that with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it. She and the president have a son together, Barron, 12.

Trump is the first presidential spouse to undergo a medical procedure of such gravity while in the White House since Nancy Reagan, who had a mastectomy in October 1987.

With the president watching in the Rose Garden, she last week unveiled the "Be Best" campaign, which she said will focus on childhood well-being, social media use and opioid abuse.

Her surgery is being called a success.
