Lang'ata Member of Parliament, Jalang'o, has provided an update on his condition following a recent surgery after an Achilles tendon injury.
Taking to his Instagram account, the MP shared details of his medical journey, expressing gratitude to those who have supported him.
"Last Tuesday during our morning Bunge basketball training, I had an accident that tore my Achilles tendons. I had reconstructive surgery, and I am back home as the 6-week recovery journey begins," Jalang'o shared.
Jalang'o went on to extend his heartfelt thanks to all those who had sent him well wishes and visited him during his stay at the Nairobi Hospital.
He also acknowledged the medical team at the hospital, particularly praising Prof. Atinga and the entire staff for their exceptional care and hospitality.
"We are down but not out! Our able Langata team will be in charge of constituency matters closely monitored by myself. Asanteni saana!" he added.
According to Mayo Clinic, Achilles tendon injuries can be debilitating, often requiring surgical intervention for a full recovery.
The Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, plays a crucial role in walking and running. Tendon injuries can lead to significant discomfort and reduced mobility.
