Pauline Hanson is recovering in hospital after having her appendix removed.
The One National leader was rushed to hospital yesterday and underwent an emergency operation to remove her appendix.
“Over the weekend I felt extraordinarily unwell. At first, I thought it was a case of food poisoning so I just took it easy.
“I woke yesterday morning to continued pains in my stomach and decided to see a GP.
“I was told I needed further scans and blood tests and was taken immediately to the hospital.
“Surgeons determined I needed an emergency operation to remove my appendix.
“Compared to the pain I was in before the surgery, today's pain is a lot less and I plan on being back on my feet tomorrow.”
This is the second health scare Hanson has experience recently, with a nasty tick bite leaving her with facial paralysis last week.
