The supreme head of the Catholic Christians, Pope Francis, has been released from the Agostino Gemelli Hospital. Pope Francis was admitted to the Agostino Gemelli University Hospital for his surgery.
Pope Francis returned home to the Vatican ten days after a three-hour surgery on July 4 that removed half of his colon. The Vatican said the operation addressed a “severe” narrowing of his large intestine — a bowel problem common in older people. The procedure, however, was planned, slated for when Francis would normally take time off. The doctor advised him to take at least two weeks of total rest.
