LONDON/ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's health has improved considerably since his open heart surgery last week, his son Hussain Nawaz said on Monday, with daughter Maryam Nawaz revealing that the premier was likely to be discharged from hospital on Monday afternoon.

The prime minister's daughter Maryam Nawaz tweeted that "Doctors are satisfied with PM's progress and latest reports. All being well, Insha'Allah PM will be discharged this afternoon".

Earlier, Hussain Nawaz said the prime minister has started oral intake of food and water, and his blood test results have improved as well.

Prime Minister Sharif takes a stroll every hour on doctors’ orders, added his son.

Maryam Nawaz also said that Sharif's recovery was on course. She tweeted: "PM's recovery on course. Was made to walk several times in the corridor during the day, and up and down a flight of stairs twice."

Hussain said the doctors had advised that Sharif should take rest for a week and a half after he is discharged from hospital.

Maryam also update the media about Sharif's plans to return home.

Sharif underwent open-heart surgery at a London hospital on May 31 and was moved to an intensive care unit in a stable condition post-surgery.

He is expected to return to Pakistan before the end of Ramadan in the first week of July, Maryam said earlier.

"Three of his arteries were blocked. It will take five or six days for the prime minister to get discharged from the hospital and we expect that he will return home in three to four weeks," she had said.
