Former premier Nawaz Sharif's wife, Begum Kulsoom, underwent successful surgery in London on Thursday, sources close to the family told DawnNews.
Begum Kulsoom was diagnosed with early-stage lymphoma earlier this month, with doctors hopeful that it would be curable.
Sources said that she would be moved to an Intensive Care Unit following the surgery.
Although there has been no official word on the surgery from the Sharif family, Maryam Nawaz, Sharif's daughter, retweeted messages congratulating her upon successful completion of the medical procedure.
