@RoyalCentral: Doctors on the BBC are saying that Prince Philip will be having a 'fairly major procedure' and that his admission could be cause for concern

I recently had major surgery and stayed for about 3 weeks in the hospital so 2 weeks especially for a man his age is remarkable. I'm assuming then doctors feel he will recover fairly quickly if they are aiming for 2 weeks.

Before going to hospital, Philip cancelled 2 engagements in the past six days. On Monday he missed a reception because he'd lost his voice

Now we know why he cancelled the reception engagement.

I hope he's OK. It does sound quite worrying.

...and just to put things in perspective...not one of these "Doctors on the BBC" have examined Prince Philip or seen his test results from last week.

You do realise that 3 days ago DOE didn't attend an engagement with The Queen due to illness? He then attended the coronation service, another engagement yesterday and a garden party today and on all three occasions he looked pretty fine for a man of 91?

This looks like a pre-planned operation due to some kind of issue.

Having your abdomen cut open is a major procedure.

If it helps any of you to worry then you should. I'm going to wait until after the procedure on Friday and when we find out if there is a problem. The media are ramping this up ahead of any specific information other than that given by the Palace and speculating all over the place.

Is that's what actually happeneing? Is his abdoman being cut open? I haven't seen that in any news reports.


Just to be Phillips health into perspective at 91 years old by the way,

"Philip, 91, has been admitted to hospital three other times in the past two years after suffering health scares.

In August 2012, he was treated at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for a bladder infection.

He spent four days in hospital over Christmas 2011, following an operation to clear a blocked heart artery.

And after attending events to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in June, he was admitted to hospital for five nights, missing several days of festivities after sustaining a bladder infection."

2 bladder infection and a blocked artery now a planned abdominal procedure.

I agree, it seems like this operation was planned but I think he tried to be there for The Queen before he was due to go into the hospital.

I would imagine it's an issue he has been having and now, as the operation denotes, it's exploratory. This essentially means "trying to find a cause" (exploratory laparotomy is another type of diagnosis operation). I hope it isn't anything too serious, but if it is I am sure he will receive the best care possible and suitable for a man of his age.

From what i read he's being put under anesthesia and he is having an abdominal operation.

"Exploratory" usually means they're going to cut and open, unless they know exactly what to look for and where to look. But then it wouldn't be "exploratory". We'll just have to wait and see. Could even be pancreatitis...

This is a quote from Post #45 from Canroyal

One of the most sensible posts on this thread to date.

I am sorry to hear that the Duke is having some medical problems but fact it, at almost 92 years of age, he's not exactly the man of steel. He's really been incredibly healthy and has kept on doing things that keep him fit and happy.

Here's what we do know. He is going into the London Clinic for an exploratory abdominal procedure. It has been planned rather than an admittance of an emergency nature. The only thing we can say for sure about the procedure is that it isn't a cesarean section. He will have a two week recuperation period in the hospital. It could be an invasive surgery, it could be a laparoscopy, it could be many things but lets hope that the press sticks to the facts.

One question that's crossed my mind. Isn't the London Clinic where Prince Friso is?
