As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Mrs. Trump was admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in suburban Washington this week to be treated for a "benign kidney condition."Although the White House has not specified what is ailing the FLOTUS, her kidney issue is believed to be non-cancerous".

On Tuesday, Donald Trump tweeted that Melania is "doing well" and will be out of the hospital in no time.

First Lady Melania Trump is recovering after undergoing a successful procedure Monday to treat a benign kidney condition.

She's not allowed to have them because of "security reasons" as she mends after undergoing kidney surgery on Monday, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed on Tuesday. Vice President Mike Pence, however, said in a speech Monday night that the procedure was "long-planned".

Trump later traveled by his Marine One helicopter to Walter Reed to visit his wife.

The White House has cited the first lady's privacy for not offering any additional details on her condition.

Overall, said Brahmbhatt, an embolization is "a fairly low risk procedure" though the biggest risk would be to over-embolize.

Sometimes embolizations can be done on an out-patient basis, he said, but sometimes they admit the patient overnight just to keep track of the kidney function and to make sure there's no excessive pain.

The president also praised her doctors for doing a "fantastic job".

President Donald Trump is expected to visit his wife in hospital, a White House official added.

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition said the most likely explanation for the embolization procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma.

"I want to start by saying that Melania is in the hospital doing really well", Trump said during the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service. Trump has acknowledged reimbursing his lawyer for the payment to porn star Stormy Daniels but denies her allegations.

Mr. Trump also spoke to the First Lady by telephone, according to Yahoo News. She and Barron moved to the White House last June.
