Oli had undergone an appendicitis surgery in November 2019 and was kept on the ventilator for a while. It was after his condition improved that he was taken off of the ventilator. The Nepalese PM had also undergone regular dialysis as his transplanted kidney has stopped functioning. He spent about 10 days in the hospital. Also, the Nepal Prime Minister had undergone four cycles of hemodialysis (procedure of purifying the blood of a person whose kidneys aren't working normally) at Grande International Hospital of Nepal.
