Medical ailments have sidelined Premier Dennis Fentie for up to two more weeks.

Fentie’s been in the hospital a lot recently.

Last week, he was in Vancouver for further medical treatment after undergoing minor surgery the week of November 12.

He was recovering in Watson Lake, according to a news release dated November 13. He was supposed to be back at work on Monday.

But on Friday, Fentie was admitted to the urology ward at Vancouver General Hospital, said a ward nurse.

He was “discharged home” on Saturday, she added.

Now Fentie is “not expected to return to the legislative assembly this week or perhaps the next,” said a release issued Monday.

The premier is in Vancouver for further medical treatment related to his recent surgery, it states.

Urology deals with urinary tracts —kidneys and bladder — and the male reproductive system.

Urologists treat everything from urinary tract infections to surgical problems, such as congenital abnormalities and certain cancers.

Government spokesperson Albert Peterson would not comment on Fentie’s condition or on his surgery.
