Pope Francis is going to have a scheduled surgery for diverticular stenosis. I hope he will be OK, but let’s be honest, I just couldn’t resist the title.
Thoughts, prayers, psyllium husk powder.
the follow-up colonoscopy, aka “lighten up Francis.”
I guess he won’t be taking any walks in the woods.
A bear could show him how.
Are Bears Catholic?
I’m not Catholic, but I do wish him a speedy recovery.
That said, everyone I’ve known personally who had a partial colectomy for diverticular disease (n = 3, including my father) later had paralytic ileus, which is no fun either.
