It took until 5 p.m. Monday to finalize the procedure , and there were two brain scans made so the doctors could see the cerebral activity, and they confirmed that Calero did not suffer a stroke .
That means, according to doctors, that tissue surrounding the artery is functioning properly .
The doctors added that Calero has everything in his favor, thanks to his good physical condition and good muscular tone.
Calero will be fed by tubes for hours after sedation, if improvement is detected .
Rumors circulated that Calero had stopped taking his medicines to prevent clots , which was flatly denied by the doctors who treated him.
