By a Staff Reporter

Kathmandu – Saraswati Chaudhary, a national volleyball player and star spiker of APF Club, has to undergo surgery of her left knee. Chaudhary informed that doctors have advised her to undergo a surgery after an MRI test showed problems in her meniscus and cartilage.

She has already been admitted to Balambu-based hospital of Armed Police Force on Sunday. The surgery has been fixed for Monday. Chaudhary informed that she sustained injury during the final match of AVC Central Zone Championship held in Bangladesh about a month ago.

Upon her return from Bangladesh, she had also participated in the Tiger Top Cup Volleyball Championship held in Pokhara.

Last year, she had played a crucial role in helping APF lift the maiden title of Tiger Top Cup. She was also adjudged the best player during the event.

“I was injured during the final match in Bangladesh. I played the final despite pain. Later it started giving me problem,” she said, adding, “I did MRI scan. The report was yet to come so I went to Pokhara. I played taking pain killer.”

It has been estimated that it will take another five months for her to return back to action.

“After a surgery, progress in physiotherapy will indicate when I can return back to the court,” said Chaudhary. “Doctors haven’t said anything yet. Probably they will let me know after I start physiotherapy.”

Chaudhary is an important player of the national team as well as APF Club. She has been a part of every success of the national team in recent past. She was also in the team when Nepal secured bronze medal in the 12th South Asian Games and a silver during the 13th SAG held two years ago in Nepal.
