Pope Francis will be operated on in the afternoon



A little over two months ago, he was hospitalized for bronchitis

After Pope Francis was taken to the hospital for a medical examination on Tuesday and returned to his residence a few hours later, the Vatican announced today that the Pope is back in the hospital and will undergo surgery in the afternoon. He will be in the hospital for several days.

The Pope will undergo an abdominal surgery in the Gemelli hospital in the afternoon, the Vatican stated. At the same time, they said that the medical team that watches over the Pope’s health has concluded that an operation is necessary. The Pope will spend several days recovering in the hospital.

The Pope, who has been dealing with various health problems for a long time, was hospitalized for bronchitis a little over two months ago.

“Pope Francis went to the Gemelli Polyclinic in Rome in the morning, where he had some tests, and returned to the Vatican before noon,” a Vatican spokesman announced on Tuesday Matteo Bruni. Tuesday’s inspection was planned in advance, the Italian newspaper Repubblica reported, citing sources in the Vatican. Repubblica, however, stated that Pope Francis underwent several specialist examinations.
