The 86-year-old Pope Francis is set to undergo an abdominal surgery at Gemelli hospital in Rome on Wednesday afternoon.
According to the Vatican, he will be staying in the hospital for a few days to recuperate from the surgery for his hernia.
According to Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni, the hernia is causing a repeated, painful, and aggravated set of symptoms.
Due to a persistent knee ailment, the elderly person, who is 86 years old, has been relying on a cane and a wheelchair to move around. In recent years, they have been struggling with a number of health problems.

According to Mr. Bruni, the patient will have a laparotomy and abdominal wall surgery in the early afternoon, where he will be put under general anesthesia.
He stated that the patient will need to stay at the medical facility for a number of days to ensure they have a standard post-surgery period and fully recover their functionality.
