Specialists speculate on Castro's health
Dr. Floriano Marchetti, an assistant professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine's division of colon and rectal surgery, said Tuesday he has no way of confirming the information in the El Pais article, but if it is true, it is possible that Castro can recover."It's a messy situation, and quite serious, but this per se is not malignant, and potentially he can survive this,"
Marchetti said.The newspaper report said the 80-year-old Castro's health problems began during the summer with severe bleeding caused by a condition called diverticulitis, which occurs when pouches or weakened spots in the intestines become infected, perforated, or blood vessels there burst.
"Castro would definitely qualify as critically ill," said Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa, a gastroenterologist at New York University School of Medicine, referring to the report.
