After it was revealed that Paquita la del Barrio would not be performing her scheduled concert, the singer’s manager announced that the cause of the cancellation was due to complications in the singer’s health, which presented severe sciatica pains.

However, the detail that generated great concern among the singer’s fans is that her manager revealed that she applied a strong medicine similar to morphine. Until yesterday she had not been able to wake up. However, the doctor would have informed them that the reaction to the medicine could last up to 4 days.

What happened was that the sciatica pain. On Wednesday, she was in pain, and she told me, ‘it hurts, I can’t,’ I told her, ‘come to Mexico, and we will take the pain away’ then they recommended a pain clinic at the ABC hospital. We explained everything to the doctor, and he said, ‘well, we have to do an MRI,’ which they have never been able to do to attack these points, but he said, ‘meanwhile, we are going to take the pain away. We are going to put a small patch of medicine that is something like morphine, not exactly morphine, and with that, in two days, she will be fine,” the singer’s manager explained.

Trusting in this, he also asked the doctor if the singer would have any reaction to the medication to know if they would put it on her and revealed that the doctor mentioned that “no, well, some drowsiness,” so they decided to put her on the medication, “she is fine, we are going to rest for two days and on Saturday she is perfect because the patch started to take effect and yesterday the doctor went to see her at her house and said, ‘well, there is nothing to do, just wait for the effect to wear off. In some patients, Paquita is strong, but in some patients, the effect lasts up to four days“.

And she continued, “it is the rebound of the morphine, here it was not tiredness, it was pain, and this patch was to calm the pain, and when I spoke to the doctor, I told him, ‘hey, help us to take away the pain’ and maybe the pain was not so strong because this type of medicine is usually given to people with cancer, but he told me, ‘let’s put it on.'”

About what would happen with the concert, she said that they had already been in talks for Ana Bárbara to perform with her as a surprise, so with the news that Paquita would not arrive, the singer stayed at the event covering the interpreter of ‘Rata de Dos Patas,’ “we were in talks with Ana Bárbara as a surprise to sing, and when this happened I still had the hope that today she would wake up and tell me, ‘you know what? I’m fine, let’s go,’ because she had it in her subconscious that she had to comply (but she couldn’t)“.

And in the middle of the press correction, she ended by saying about the health of Paquita la del Barrio, “her manager already said a few words that here it is and the rest you will be informed, the best energy! thank you“.
