MANILA – TV host Boy Abunda is still recuperating after he recently underwent an aspiration of the liver abscess, his doctor said on Sunday.

In a statement read on “The Buzz” by Toni Gonzaga, Abunda’s doctor said the TV host’s condition has tremendously improved, adding that his appetite is slowly coming back.

“Restful sleep is restored and basic physical activity has resumed. In the upcoming few days, antibiotic treatment will be completed. Meantime, supportive care will continue and periodic monitoring by laboratory exams will be done to ascertain that he is on track towards full recovery,” the doctor said.

According to the statement, Abunda will no longer need any further invasive procedures if his condition further improves.

“Boy is a patient patient, interrogates the staff when necessary but compliant. Most importantly, he actively participates in his care. This dynamic cooperation with his healthcare providers has contributed to the current state of improvement in the outcome of his medical care,” his doctor said.

Kris Aquino, Abunda’s close friend, confirmed last Wednesday that the TV host was rushed to hospital on August 9 when his temperature reached 41 degrees Celsius.

Since then, Abunda has been absent on “Aquino and Abunda Tonight” as well as on “The Buzz.”

On Sunday, comedian Vice Ganda filled in for both Abunda and Aquino, who is currently on vacation, on "The Buzz," with regular host Toni Gonzaga.
