Pope Francis gets colon surgery in Rome – Vatican

Vatican: Pope Francis underwent scheduled colon surgery in Rome on Sunday, and reacted well to it, the Vatican said.

“The Holy Father, who was admitted to the A. Gemelli Policlinic [in Rome] in the afternoon, underwent the planned surgery for diverticular stenosis of the colon,” Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a Sunday statement.

Bruni added that Pope Francis “reacted well to the operation performed under general anesthesia.”

This was the first time that Pope Francis, 84, was admitted to a hospital since becoming pope in 2013.
