Navalni is still in the prison’s medical unit and his temperature is being checked, his other lawyer, Vadim Kobzev said on Twitter.
Navalny, 44, announced her hunger strike last week, calling for medical attention due to severe back pain and leg numbness. He had an MRI scan on March 24, and prison officials told the Interfax news agency the next day that his condition was in phase. “Satisfactory and constant”;
On Wednesday, Navalny relayed the results of that MRI scan to his lawyer during their visit: a disc with two herniated discs and a bulging disk, Mikhailova said, the prison’s doctor prescribed diclofenac, which is a Anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as nicotinic acid, which are not used. “In medicine for 30 years”
Navalny denied the treatment, she said.
“Alexe hasn’t received a scan, he hasn’t seen any medical reports. But they allowed him to write down the diagnosis from their words, ”Mikhailova told Dozhd.“ A hernia is difficult to treat and is not adequately described in the diagnosis. Our neuroscientist concluded that the treatments he prescribed in the colony were ineffective and could worsen symptoms. ”
Kobzev said on Twitter that Navalny was able to walk. But felt pain when doing so.
“A contributing factor is that the disease has made significant progress in terms of the loss of sensitivity in his legs and hands,” said the lawyer, adding that Navalny had lost one kilogram of weight per day since the hunger strike began. Navalny lost about 30 pounds in three weeks, according to Mikhailova.
Navalni was escaped from a sedative poisoning in August in what he said was an assassination attempt ordered by President Vladimir Putin. After a five-month conviction in Germany, Navalny was immediately jailed after returning to Russia in January.
He was later sentenced to 2½ years in prison for violating parole in 2014 in part because he failed to report to authorities while on medical treatment in Germany.
On Tuesday, Anastasia Vasilyeva, head of the Navalny-affiliated Alliance of Doctors, went to a parole colony in Pokrov, about 60 miles east of Moscow, demanding that Navalny be inspected.She was subsequently detained by officers.
“As I understand it, they are afraid to have skilled doctors there, people who understand how to treat these diseases,” Mikhailova said Wednesday. They make his health worse and it will lighten. ”
