The 74-year-old French politician Isabelle Balkany is receiving postoperative care at her home after being diagnosed with life-threatening cancerous lung tumors called Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET).

Isabelle and her husband Patrick Balkany were accused of tax evasion, for which Patric has already been imprisoned. But due to the weak condition of Mrs. Balkany, she is being treated.

Balkany had to undergo 5 hours of surgical operations to remove the right middle lobe and part of the bronchus. But, right after her prolonged operation, postoperative complications arose.

As of now, the health condition of French politician Bernard Balkany is much more fragile and unbearable than it was before. If the scenario worsens, she will undergo intensive treatment in the coming months.

This is not the first time Belkany has been hospitalized; she attempted suicide in February and was rushed into the emergency sector. Since then, she has been in the hospital.

Likewise, she also tested positive for COVID-19 when she was getting treatment for her suicide attempt. But recently, after long days in the hospital, she was discharged and is recovering at her home in Giverny (Earl).

Update On Isabelle Balkany's Lung Cancer Treatment

The former member of the Les Republicans, Isabelle Balkany, has been diagnosed with right lung cancer, Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET). 

However, even after undergoing several treatments and surgeries, it seems like the health of Balkany is not finding a way to get better, but more difficulties are blocking her way.

The French politician had undergone 5-hour long operational surgery, which did not help her out. Instead, the surgery to remove the right middle lobe and a portion of the bronchus added to her health problems.

Recently, on Saturday, June 4, she was discharged from the hospital and is currently following recovery at her home in Giverny in the Eure.

By that time, if she had not been diagnosed with any health issues, she would have been summoned by the courts for the execution of a sentence for tax evasion.

The deteriorating health condition of the former French politician has been pushing her several charges, including false statements, tax fraud, and corruption, away from her.

Following her fragile condition, the court found applying any charges to her immoral and has patiently waited for her to ameliorate from the life-threatening disease.

Before attempting suicide, on her Twitter account, she had posted:

I just want to sleep. Sleep. Exhausted by age, hatred, others, anxiety for the man of my life, the wound, incurable, of the "scrub" of what I could do positively, Thank you to those who made me happy to love me... and to my 4-legged loves! "

She had publicly posted an equivocal message via her Twitter account just a few minutes before attempting suicide by inhaling a lot of her usual treatment before the first trial.

How Old Is the French Politician Isabelle Balkany? Age Revealed

Isabelle Balkany, the French 74-year-old former first deputy mayor of Levallois-Perret, has been suffering from various health issues, including COVID-19, suicide attempts, mental exhaustion, and lung cancer.

With the following lists of life-threatening diseases, her court hearing and charges are delayed as she cannot be imprisoned following her health condition.

The French politician, Mrs. Balkany, had not just attempted suicide once but had repeated the similar activity several times, concluding that she needed some therapy.

While Mrs. Balkany is stuck between life and death, Mr. Balkany is being incarcerated for tax invasion, and his request for parole has been refused by the judge several times.

However, the court is looking forward to Isabelle getting better soon so she can replenish the charges of 3 years of imprisonment for commutation tax fraud and evasion.

Mrs. Balkany, a former Union for a Popular Movement member, spent nearly four months between the hospital walls following her crucial condition of physical and psychological health.
