Pope Francis seen leaving hospital 10 days after undergoing surgery
Pope Francis has been seen leaving hospital, 10 days after undergoing planned surgery to remove half his colon.
Witnesses said a car carrying Francis (84) was seen leaving Rome’s Gemelli Polytechnic hospital this morning.
Francis had half of his colon removed for a severe narrowing of his large intestine on July 4, his first major surgery since he became pope in 2013.
It was a planned procedure, scheduled for early July when the Pope’s audiences are suspended anyway and Francis would normally take some time off.
