Panic In Vatican As Pope Francis To Undergo Instestinal Surgery

•He would be put under general anesthesia and hospitalized for several days.

Pope Francis has been reported to have gone to the hospital on Wednesday, for surgery on his intestine, two years after he had 33 centimeters (13 inches) of his colon removed because of an inflammation and narrowing of the large intestine.

The Vatican said Francis, 86, would be put under general anesthesia and would be hospitalized for several days.

Pope Francis appeared at his weekly general audience on Wednesday, a day after he went to the hospital for a checkup.

The Argentine pope had part of one lung removed when he was a young man. He also suffers from sciatica nerve pain and has been using a wheelchair and walker for more than a year because of strained ligaments in his knee.

According to the Vatican report, Pope Francis was on his way to Rome’s Gemelli Hospital Wednesday for abdominal surgery and will stay in hospital for several days, the Vatican press office said.

The pontiff was forced to cancel several work commitments in late May after he was debilitated by a fever, sparking renewed concerns for his health.

He was hospitalized in March for bronchitis but responded well to antibiotics.

Leaving hospital on that occasion, Francis joked that he’s “still alive.”
