Revilla seeks treatment for pain in both heels


Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. wants to undergo a medical examination at the Philippine National Police (PNP) General Hospital in Camp Crame In Quezon City after he experienced “intense pain” in both heels.

Revilla, who is charged with plunder before the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan in connection with the pork barrel scam, is detained in the PNP Custodial Center also in Camp Crame, the national police headquarters.

In a three-page urgent motion filed on Wednesday afternoon, the senator sought permission from the anti-graft court’s First Division to let him undergo an X-ray of both feet and physical therapy, two to three times a week for two weeks.

The senator said he was physically examined last February 6 at the PNP Custodial Service Unit (CSU) Detention Center and was initially found to be suffering from “Insertional Achilles Tendinitis B.”

His pleading further read that upon further examination, he was also diagnosed to be afflicted with “Herniated Nucleus Pulposus L4-L5, L5-S1” of the lumbar region.

PS/Supt. Francisco Agudon, MD, of the PNP General Hospital, who examined Revilla, recommended that the senator undergo an x-ray of both feet and physical therapy, two to three times a week for two weeks.

Attached to the pleading was a medical certificate signed by Dr. Agudon wherein he also suggested application of intermittent lumbar traction.

“Unless proper medical attention is given to Senator Revilla, his condition may further aggravate. There is therefore a need for him to undergo a more extensive medical examination and treatment as soon as possible to address his medical conditions, so as to prevent further complications,” Revilla’s camp said.

  1. Iyong kleptomaniackitis mo worth P200 million before na mas grabe hindi mo piñagamot at ngayon simpleng heel pain lang may MRI pa. GOUT po iyan mister sa dami ng kinain mung masa sarap habang ang mga kababayan mo naghihirap….KARMA

  2. Here we go again, you dont have to think very far back when we had the arroyo debacle. She had this debilitating life threatening neck problem, where she needed to go abroad to get the medical treatment that is only known of by that country. If she doesnt get it there is a good possibility she will die from this. Well in hindsight now can you see what a joke it was, that she was taking everyone for a ride. Yes she has a neck problem but is her life in danger no & it never was & they knew all along it never was but they wanted her to flee the country. But still she doesnt spend a single day in jail.
    Its so strange that every corrupt politician when caught suddenly gets ill with what turns out to be life threatening illnesses, i wonder why this doesnt happen to the normal man on the street, hhhmmmm.

  3. Umpisa pa lang yan ng mga kasalanan mo sa taong bayan. Kung ayaw mong magkasakit ng kanser, isoli mo na lahat ng ninakaw mo sa bayan imbes na ibayad mo sa mga abogado mo. Kung naniniwala ka sa karma, ay tumigil ka na sa pag-ma-ang-maangan. Stop playing innocence for God knows you and Unngoy Estrada stole a lot of money from the government.

  4. First and foremost, he is an actor not a senator. 2ndly, not just an actor but an action actor. Let me see, heel problems and low back that requires therapy & traction. Hmmmm, I see he has a need to treat outside of the country. Parang scripted na naman! Magpaka-lalake ka tulad ng tatay mo!
