As we informed on The Yucatan Times, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto was taken urgently to the Central Military Hospital Facility in Mexico City, where he had his gallbladder removed on the early morning hours of Friday June 26.

Today, Sunday June 28, the President has left the hospital after undergoing surgery and spending about 48 hours hospitalized.

Peña Nieto was healthy enough to personally tell the press he is feeling “very good” and thanking doctors and nurses for their professional care. He will return to his regular schedule Monday, June 29, including a visit by Spanish King Felipe VI.

The 48-year-old president had the operation on Friday after experiencing “intense discomfort.” Doctors said it was the only option. They said he was fully healthy and in charge after the surgery.

The illness forced Peña Nieto to cancel plans to travel to Guatemala on Friday June 26, for a regional summit of national leaders.
