BOGOTA (AP) — Doctors say Wednesday's cancer operation on Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has gone off successfully.
Dr. Adolfo Llinas is the medical director of the Fundacio Santa Fe Hospital in the Colombian capital and he says there were no complications during the 2 ½ hour operation, which was carried out under local anesthetic.
The lead surgeon on the prostate operation was Felipe Gomez and he says the president should be back home in two or three days.
Santos earlier said doctors told him he has a 97 percent chance of being cured.
