LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan was discharged from Shaukat Khanum hospital on Wednesday, Express News reported.
The 60-year-old was ordered to remain immobile in bed after he fractured vertebrae and a rib in a dramatic tumble from a hoist lifting him to a stage in Lahore just days before the May 11 general election.
Doctors have advised the PTI chairman to rest for two weeks.
Imran will stay in Lahore for three days and will later move to his house in Islamabad.
According to the hospital’s website, Imran will continue to receive regular physiotherapy and will need to wear a spinal support for few weeks.
The PTI chairman will be able to return to his full functional capacity in approximately six to eight weeks.
On Tuesday, Imran took his first steps since the injury and a video on the hospital's Facebook page on Wednesday showed him walking gingerly but unaided from his third-floor room to the exit.
