Anderson Cooper✔@andersoncooper I'll be back on air tomorrow. Had an appendicitis and had to have sudden surgery last night 2:47 AM - 2 Dec 2014
He did not say whether or not Dr. Sanjay Gupta performed the surgery. During Monday night's show, CNN anchor John Berman filled in at the desk for Cooper, but gave no explanation for the absence. Appendicitis is a relatively common condition, but can be life-threatening if left untreated. After a surgery to remove the infected vestigial organ, recovery time for an appendectomy is typically relatively short. Seeing as Cooper's been shot at, threatened, and faced any number of natural disasters, a minor sugery should be nothing …
