Chavez in an increasingly good condition after surgery – VP Nicolas Maduro

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is said to be in better health after undergoing cancer surgery in Cuba, VP Nicolas Maduro said on Saturday. Earlier Chavez was described as being in a stable condition. Chavez underwent surgery to remove cancer from his body on December 11 suffering complications in the process. Chavez suffered “bleeding that required the use of corrective measures” during the operation, Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said earlier, adding that the recovery process will require “a prudent period of time as a consequence of the complexity of the surgery performed.”
