(AP) — The Vatican says Pope Francis’ recovery from intestinal surgery continues to be “regular and satisfactory.” The Vatican also revealed Wednesday that final examinations showed Francis had a suffered a “severe” narrowing of his colon as a result of scarring and inflammation.

The Vatican indicated there was no evidence of cancer being detected during an examination of the tissue removed Sunday. Doctors said that was a good sign and evidence that the suspected condition of a narrowing of the colon due to scarring had been confirmed.

The Vatican spokesman said the 84-year-old pope was continuing to eat regularly and that intravenous therapy had been suspended, a sign he was meeting all his fluid needs orally.
