National League for Democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has cancelled all engagements for the remainder of the year as her doctor has advised her to rest following a minor medical operation last Monday for bunions on her big toe.
Suu Kyi’s family doctor Tin Myo Win said the 68-year-old Nobel Prize winner is in good health after successful surgery at Rangoon’s Asia Royal; however she must avoid standing or walking for lengths of time.
Party spokesperson Nyan Win said a planned visit by Suu Kyi to the town of Maubin in Irrawaddy division where she was scheduled to address constitution reform had been cancelled. Suu Kyi was also planning to visit Chin state in northwestern Burma from 6 to 10 January – the spokesperson said the schedule now may change depending on her condition.
