Pataki faces post-appendectomy surgery

first_imgALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. George Pataki, showing no improvement five days after surgeons removed his appendix, was transferred Tuesday to a New York City hospital and underwent another operation. Doctors operated to alleviate a blockage in Pataki’s digestive system, said his spokesman, David Catalfamo. Afterward, the governor was “awake, alert and resting comfortably,” Catalfamo said in a statement. Pataki, 60, checked himself into Hudson Valley Medical Center on Thursday complaining of severe abdominal pain. His appendix, which had begun to rupture, was removed during emergency surgery.
