“Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto had his gallbladder removed on the early morning hours of Friday June 26, is recovering well and due to return to work on Monday June 29“, his office said in a statement.
“Post-operational developments have been very favorable,” the Mexican presidency said, adding that Peña Nieto had left the operating room after a one hour surgery procedure.
Peña Nieto, who took office in December 2012, had a successful operation in July 2013 to remove a benign nodule on his thyroid gland that had been detected some years earlier.
Pena Nieto had been due to visit Guatemala on Friday June 26, but was taken to hospital after feeling unwell in the morning.
On a news conference held at the Military Hospital at noon, the doctors said that the President is successfully recovering after surgery, but will have to remain hospitalized for a period of 24 to 48 hours.
The 48-year-old’s term in office is due to conclude at the end of November 2018.
