CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is undergoing "complex" alternative treatments more than two months after having cancer surgery in Cuba, his vice president said on Wednesday.
The 58-year-old socialist leader has not been seen in public since he went to Havana for the operation on December 11, his fourth surgery for cancer in 18 months.
Vice President Nicolas Maduro did not give details of the alternative treatments the president was receiving. Chavez has never said what type of cancer he is suffering from, and critics accuse the government of excessive secrecy over his condition.
"Today our commander is undergoing alternative treatments ... they are complex and difficult treatments that must, at some point, end the cycle of his illness," Maduro said in comments on state TV.

Does "complex, alternative treatment" translate into being embalmed?
Hopefully, embalment. You beat me to it!
You rascal! You beat me to it.
There’s always cremation!
And then an automaton from Disney.
Está muerto, Jim.
Wonder if the hearse was painted in ambulance colors?
“Hugo Chavez is undergoing “complex” alternative treatments”
Well, lessee, they stick a hook up yer butt and pull out your intestines and other giblets before embalming you so that the intestinal bacteria don’t dissolve you into a smelly pile of goo at the funeral.
That’s pretty complex to do so that you don’t look anorexic in the casket.
That reminds me to buy a bottle of champagne. I’d hate to be unprepared when old Hugo kicks off.
He’s DEAD, Jim!..............
Voodoo, zombie ceremony........
I have an alternative treatment for him.
“Treatments that must, at some point, end the cycle of his illness”
As in “dead”?
Does “complex, alternative treatment” translate into being embalmed?
my thoughts as well...
Yes-just like that...
For all we know, he could be already decked out, wrapped in mylar and in deep freeze, just waiting for the proper moment to be mourned.
