Guagua, Pampanga--Former president and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said she might have to wear a neck brace "forever" as she continues to undergo therapy.
After being discharged from St. Luke's Medical Center in Quezon City where she was confined since Thursday, Arroyo went straight here to meet with dignitaries, as she sought to boost tourism in her province.
Arroyo was confined due to cervical radiculopathy or pinched nerve.
When asked how long she would be wearing the neck brace, Arroyo told Yahoo! Southeast Asia: "Forever."
"I've been using using this before. But now I'll be using it more constantly. [In the past I use this] only when in transport," Arroyo told Yahoo! Southeast Asia in a chance interview.
Arroyo said she feels better and will be able to attend Senator Miriam Santiago's renewal of wedding vows on Sunday.
Arroyo also said doctors have not recommended any special diet for her.
"Not even rest, just this one and therapy," said Arroyo, pointing to her neck brace.
