King Juan Carlos may have to return to the hospital for yet another operation, potentially the latest in numerous procedures in the past several years.
After a series of routine tests, Royal Household medical chief Miguel Fernández Tapia-Ruano said His Majesty’s condition was “satisfactory.”
However, the King will undergo further tests to asses the severity of an old hernia and, as a result, will scale back his schedule this week.
A press released said doctors would determine “the most adequate treatment.” The hernia may be keeping him from walking upright, media reports said.
Meanwhile, other members of the Royal Family are continuing their full schedule.
Today Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia handed out the National Awards for Culture at the Pardo Palace in the outskirts of Madrid.
