Brazilian media is reporting that ailing Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will make an emergency trip to Brazil after allegedly suffering intestinal burns during his radiation treatment in Cuba.
Chávez, who in June of last year revealed that Cuban doctors had removed a cancerous tumor from his abdominal region, has been going back-and-forth from the island nation for treatment. The Associated Press reported earlier on Thursday that the Venezuelan leader had returned to his country on Wednesday night from radiation treatment in Cuba.
"So far, fortunately there hasn't been any adverse reaction to the treatment," Chavez said Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. "All the exams that have been carried out have shown positive results of physical recovery."
However, the Brazilian daily O Globo reported a rumor from Venezuelan journalist Nelson Bocaranda that Chávez could be headed to the hospital Sirio e Libanês in Sao Paulo.

I promise you Freeper pigs that free medical care such as that found in the Socialist Workers Paradise of Cuba is always better than the care found in capitalist systems such as the United States ... except when the doctors accidentally burn up your guts with radiation ... because they lack the proper equipment and training ... after they fail to remove all of the cancer with the original surgery ... because they lack the proper labs good surgeons ... and do not apply the right chemotherapy ... because they lack decent labs and medicines ... and fail to catch the cancer in the first place ... because they lack proper imaging and screening procedures. Other than those minor details, socialized medicine is definitely the best.
I don’t understand this. Michael Moore told us that Cuba had the worlds best healthcare system.
Cuba, Brazil? Doesn’t his Utopian Venezuela have any doctors? Kind of a shame he can’t lower himself to get treated in the USA by real doctors in a real hospital. This is where Obamacare will lead.
I presume that, if Chavez is not going to Cuba, he may not have the strength to do so.
Burn baby burn...
I think it’s more of a case that many of the doctors have relatives that have suffered under Chavas.
He probably doesn’t want to take a chance that some of those doctors might accidentally give him the incorrect treatments or medications.
“We don’t need need no water........”
Chavez is not just one of the proletariat. This is what the cream of the crop Commies get as medical treatment? This is rank amateur treatment.
Is this about the same as MM saying he has dieted strenuously for the past 5 years? Just about as true.
Some need to tell MM Cuba has a great weigh loss treatment.
The Venezuelan doctors are practicing in south Florida.
There are few in the world that I would say this, but I hope this slug suffers a long horrible death, and burns in hell.
Why don’t they stick a fuel rod from Fukishima up his ass and be done with it.
Losing intestines is a b!tch. Might mean ol Hugo will have to carry around with a sh!tbag. If true, very appropriate somehow.
Top rank Cubans fly to Spain for med care.
What was Hugo thinking ?
The same thing they always do. Ignore facts, twist the truth and blame someone else.
Healthcare in Cuba is free, and worth every penny.
Just send him to the military hospital to have the tumor shot out.
Why dont they stick a fuel rod from Fukishima up his ass and be done with it.
2. Sounds like, in essence, that’s what they did do, hence the complications.
” That guy is dead.”
I remember reading that many medical experts were wondering why Chavez did not originally go to Brazil, who has outstanding cancer medical treatments and facilities, as compared to Cuba?
Does he still smell the sulfur?
The most recent surgery had to be done by a team of Soviet surgeons because the Cubans messed up first time around. The Soviet team gave him 2 years or less. I’m going with “much less”.
I suspect that where he's going, it will be way too warm to do much, anyway. Tyrants always fear death, because, like the devil and demons, they believe. And tremble.
