What is peritonitis? The reason for Victoria Federica’s operation
According to Vanitatis, the granddaughter of the emeritus king and queen had to be hospitalized in Madrid for surgery for peritonitis, a condition that causes severe pain in the abdomen and arises from inflammation of the peritoneum, the membrane that covers the organs in that area of the body.
The most common cause of this health problem is due to a bacterial infection caused by inflammation of the appendix. In addition to chronic pain, people may experience nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tachycardia, fever, extreme thirst and fatigue.
According to the Spanish magazine, the young woman was discharged on Tuesday, September 13 after three days of hospitalization and is recovering satisfactorily at home.
Undoubtedly, it will be a downturn in her busy social agenda to become one of the most influential people of the Spanish royal family.
