The Pope, who is 86 years old, is scheduled to undergo abdominal surgery at Gemelli hospital in Rome on Wednesday afternoon.
According to the Vatican, it is anticipated that he will spend "multiple days" in the hospital recuperating from his hernia surgery.
According to the Vatican spokesperson Matteo Bruni, the hernia is responsible for causing repeated, intensifying, and distressing symptoms.
The elderly individual has experienced various medical problems in the past few years and relies on a cane and wheelchair because of a persistent knee condition.
The Vatican announced that the Pope’s medical team determined that surgery was necessary after evaluating his condition in the past few days.
According to Mr. Bruni, the patient will have a laparotomy and abdominal wall surgery in the early afternoon while being given general anesthesia.
According to him, the patient will have to stay in the health facility for a few days to recover completely and go through the usual post-operative process.
On Wednesday, Pope Francis held his usual weekly audience and didn’t make any reference to his upcoming surgery.
The Vatican’s press office has announced that all scheduled appearances by a particular individual have been cancelled until June 18th due to precautions being taken.
On Tuesday, the Pope visited a hospital in Rome for a pre-planned medical examination, several months after he had been hospitalized due to bronchitis.
In March, he was hospitalized for three days to treat a lung infection. This happened during the same month when he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his role as a pontiff.
The Pope, Francis, underwent surgery to eliminate a painful bowel condition in 2021 and was hospitalized for 10 days. However, he has disclosed that the problem has resurfaced.
In the previous month, he cancelled his Friday appointments because he was suffering from a fever.
Even though Pope Benedict XVI resigned in 2013, the current Pope has no intention of leaving his position.
According to reports, he allegedly told one of his assistants last year that the Church is not run by physical force but by intellect and leadership.
The leader of the Catholic Church, known as the Pope, is believed to have maintained good health throughout the ten years of his leadership.
Despite having a full schedule, he plans to visit Portugal and Mongolia in August.
