The Quebec Solidarity Party’s Rosemont member announced in the National Assembly late Saturday that he has left hospital eight days after undergoing surgery to replace his hips.
“I initially had the idea of day surgery in mind; Then: We’ll keep you for the weekend, and here I am just discharged from the hospital after… 8 days. Good to see [soleil]», published on Saturday on X.
The politician announced on his Facebook page on October 20 that he had undergone surgery to replace his hips.
“I am now equipped with new appliances, but before I go to display these new appliances in the streets of Rosemont or in the National Assembly, I will have to subject myself to a period of convalescence, the duration of which I know not at the moment nor the requirements,” he then warned, anticipating a forced rest of a few weeks at best.
He must then “gradually resume certain activities” from his home. Meanwhile, his constituency office remains open.
It is Guillaume Cliche-Rivard, the MP for Saint-Henri-Saint-Anne for Quebec Solidaire, who is filling in for Mr. Marisal during his absence.
Vincent Marisal had also told QUB radio, in November 2022, that he had already been waiting for more than a year, lamenting the extra waiting time to have surgery in a public clinic and thus saving the cost of the intervention.
