Melania Trump back in public eye after 'little rough patch'

Melania Trump

Dr. Kelvin Hong, the director of the Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology Center, said a four-hour operation to treat the condition described by the White House would be unusual.

Melania Trump attended a White House event for military veterans on Monday, ending a 25-day absence from the public eye that had sent the rumour mills into overdrive.

She skipped Trump's "Celebration For America" event on the South Lawn on Tuesday and is scheduled to make her first appearance before the press since her hospitalization at a hurricane season briefing at FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday afternoon.

The first lady showed herself in public Wednesday for the first time in almost a month, seated alongside her husband, President Donald Trump, for a briefing on the federal government's preparedness for the hurricane season that began June 1.

The US first lady, known for her privacy and independence, had not been seen in public since having surgery last month. "I [don't] really want to call [the White House] because Melania is there", said Ivana.

So far, the White House stands by the details of Melania Trump's procedure, and anything else is conjecture.

Trump tweeted Wednesday that during his wife's recovery, "they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H". The procedure was successful and there were no complications.

"Thank you, Melania. She's doing great".

"I tell you, I'm technically first lady Trump", Ivana said on the The Wendy Williams Show. "Isn't that right honey?" the president said. They were refuted both by the President and the first lady. She later said medical professionals who have been discussing the first lady's case with journalists are "uninformed".

Her prolonged absence sparked wild online speculation that she had been out of view for other reasons. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

Before this week, Mrs. Trump was last seen in public on May 10, helping Trump welcome home three Americans released from detention in North Korea.
