Vatican: Pope Francis doing well after colon surgery

Posted: Monday, July 5, 2021. 8:19 am CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Yesterday, the Vatican issued a statement saying that Pope Francis “reacted well” to colon surgery this weekend.

“The Holy Father, admitted in the afternoon to A. Gemelli Polyclinic, underwent in the evening planned surgery for a diverticular stenosis of the sigmoid” portion of the colon, said Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni. “The Holy Father reacted well to the surgery conducted under general anesthesia.”

Bruni added that Francis, 84, was attended to by a four-person surgical team, and an additional four-person anesthesiologist team.

Stenosis is an abnormal constriction or narrowing, while the sigmoid portion of the large intestine extends from the end of the descending colon to the rectum. Doctors note that the sigmoid segment is a common location for diverticular stenosis.

ABC News notes that this is the first time that Francis has been admitted to a hospital since becoming pope in 2013. He had not spoken publicly about the pending surgery, however; a week prior he asked the public to pray for him.

“I ask you to pray for the pope, pray in a special way,” Francis had asked the faithful in the square on June 27. “The pope needs your prayers,” he said, adding his thanks and saying “I know you will do that.”
