Venezuela's President Chavez on wheelchair due to femur fracture: Report
[Iran Press TV] A Venezuelan journalist says His Excellency President-for-Life, Caudillo of the Bolivarians Hugo Chavez has been forced to use a wheelchair due to severe pain caused by a fracture in his femur and his spreading cancer.
The pro-opposition Venezuelan columnist and radio talk-show host, Nelson Bocaranda, reported this week that Chavez got a fracture in his femur during his radiotherapy in Cuba.
Spending most of the last six weeks in the Cuban capital of Havana for radiotherapy treatment, Chavez has only been seen live in public once since mid-April.
|Bone metastasis. That weakened the bone. Weaker still with radiation. It happens. Hurts like hell...|
"Everyone around him knows that tough times are coming," said Bocaranda.
US-based Venezuelan Doctor Jose Marquina, who reportedly has access to Chavez's medical records, has also claimed that Chavez's "incurable disease is a very aggressive cancer that is progressing very quickly."
