Police Commissioner Remains Hospitalized
The Government of Guyana and the Guyana Police Force continue to keep a lid on information regarding the health of police commissioner Henry Greene who remains a patient at the Balwant Singh hospital in a serious condition.
Although the commissioner has been hospitalized for over a week, information about the state of his health has not been forthcoming from the government or the police force. The police force would only say the man is still hospitalized.
Over the weakened there was a flurry of reports regarding the state of the commissioner’s health as he was rushed into the intensive care unit following serious complications from two surgeries that were done over the past 5 days.
A surgery was done to remove a ruptured vein in one of his legs and another surgery was done to address some issues in his stomach. That last surgery was responsible for most of the complications that followed, this newscast has learnt.
Doctors are extremely concerned about the commissioner’s health and the fact that he is already diabetic and overweight with blood pressure problems and heart problems also. The 57 year old has been in and out of the hospital this year for a number of complaints. He passed the age for retirement two years ago but opted to stay on when the government asked. The administration just last week said he will remain in the police commissioner’s position despite the current health problems he is facing. While the government may have that confidence, medical sources familiar with the ailments associated with Greene, believes he may be in need of a lot of rest and serious medical attention.
