The conditions of the president emeritus of the Republic, Giorgio Napolitano , who in recent days underwent a delicate operation on the abdomen, are still standing.
"He has temperament and courage to spare", explains Giuseppe Maria Ettorre, specialist in oncological surgery and liver transplants at San Camillo-Spallanzani in Rome, who with his team followed the operation, which lasted two hours and carried out for intestinal problems .
Napolitano is awake but remains in intensive care . “The prognosis will be dissolved when the patient is out of any risk linked to both the surgery and the anesthesia”, then specified Ettorre.
Unfortunately, for some time now there have been rumors about the precarious state of health of the former President of the Republic and senator for life, who will turn 97 in June.
In March 2021 Napolitano was taken to the Santo Spirito hospital in Rome for tests on various ailments and then discharged to return to the house where he lives, in the Monti district. In the previous month of February, precisely due to problems related to health, he had not been able to participate in the vote that had given the green light to the Draghi government.
In 2018 he had undergone major coronary surgery.
