MANILA, Philippines — Senator Leila de Lima has been discharged from the hospital after undergoing a “major” surgery and is now recovering from the procedure.

She then extended thanks to those who prayed for her.

Last week, the senator underwent a vaginal hysterectomy with anterior and posterior colporrhaphy at the Manila Doctors Hospital.
