Arroyo expresses confidence Duterte can manage despite medical tests

Oct 5, 2018 @ 5:23

Citing her own experience, House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo expressed confidence Friday that President Rodrigo Duterte will be able to manage despite undergoing medical tests.

The former President and incumbent Pampanga 2nd District Representative shared her views in an interview in Floridablanca, Pampanga where she inspected a flood control project.

Duterte said Thursday night he underwent some tests at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City on Wednesday.

He admitted undertaking colonoscopy and endoscopy on orders of his personal physician.

“I don’t know where, where I’m now physically. But I have to wait for that. But I would tell you that. If it’s cancer, it’s cancer. And if it’s third stage, no more treatment. I will not prolong my agony in this office or anywhere,” Duterte said.

Sought for her comment on the President’s admission, Arroyo said, “Ako rin, nagpapagamot, ‘di ba? Eh, nakakapag-6 o’clock pa ako na adjournment (ng hearing sa Congress).”

“So, kaya. Kaya!” Arroyo declared.

The 71-year-old seasoned politiko has admitted she is still suffering from her degenerative bone disease which required her to undergo a delicate surgery a few years back.
