Portia de Rossi is recovering after emergency surgery Friday night. The 48-year-old at home and “doing well,” a rep tells People.
De Rossi’s wife Ellen De Generes took her to the hospital after she suffered extreme pain. “Ellen rushed Portia to the hospital on Friday night, she was in a lot of pain. It was appendicitis and she had surgery.”
Appendicitis is a relatively common condition causing blockage or inflammation of the appendix. If it is not treated, the organ can burst.
