The 86-year-old Pope Francis is scheduled to undergo an abdominal surgery on Wednesday afternoon at Gemelli hospital located in Rome.
According to the Vatican, he is anticipated to remain in the hospital for multiple days to recuperate from his hernia surgery.
According to Vatican spokesperson Matteo Bruni, the hernia is resulting in recurring and increasingly painful symptoms.
Due to a persistent knee ailment, the elderly individual who is 86 years old has been experiencing a series of health problems. As a result, they require a cane and a wheelchair to aid in their mobility.
According to a statement released by the Vatican, the medical team of the pope recommended a surgery in the past few days.
Mr. Bruni stated that the patient will have a laparotomy and abdominal wall surgery in the early afternoon, while being unconscious under the effects of general anesthesia.
According to him, the patient will have to spend a few days at the medical center to undergo the standard post-surgical process and ensure complete recovery of their functionality.
On Wednesday, Pope Francis conducted his typical weekly audience without addressing his forthcoming surgery.
Just prior to this incident, the Pope had gone to a hospital in Rome for a planned examination, several months after he had been admitted with bronchitis.
In March, he was admitted to the hospital for three days due to a lung infection. This happened to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his pontificate.
The Pope Francis had to undergo surgery to remove a section of his colon in 2021 due to a painful bowel condition. He spent around 10 days in the hospital for the treatment. However, the Pope has now disclosed that the same issue has resurfaced.
In the previous month, he canceled his Friday appointments because he had a high body temperature.
Although Benedict XVI resigned from his position in 2013, the current Pope has stated that he has no intentions of stepping down from his role.
Last year, it is reported that he told one of his assistants that the Church is not managed by physical force, but rather by intellect and leadership.
Throughout his ten-year tenure as the head of the Catholic Church, the Pope was believed to have maintained good overall health.
Despite having a hectic routine, he has planned to travel to Portugal and Mongolia in August.
