LONDON: It can take former prime minister Nawaz Sharif a few months to recover, said his personal physician Dr Adnan Khan, on Thursday.
Speaking to media in London, Dr Adnan said that Nawaz's treatment had resumed from where it had been paused for his travel.
"Next week, Nawaz's PED scan will be conducted," he said. "We have booked other appointments for tomorrow and the coming days."
Dr Adnan said that doctors were of the view that the dose of steroids being given to the former prime minister should be reduced and then stopped completely.
"Nawaz's health is the same for now, it will take some time for him to recover," he said. "He can't heal overnight."
Dr Adnan said that Nawaz was being provided all medical facilities at his son's house where he was staying.
He said that Nawaz was being treated as per his medical reports.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif met with doctors on Wednesday after he arrived in London via an air ambulance for medical treatment late on Tuesday.
