    ROME, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Pope John Paul has been taken to an operating theatre in Rome's Gemelli hospital and might have surgery to help him breathe more easily, Italian media said on Thursday. A television report said earlier that doctors were considering performing a tracheotomy, where a small opening is cut into the neck and the windpipe so air can directly flow into the lungs. Sky Italia television and state broadcaster RAI both reported that "everything was ready for a tracheotomy" and said the 84-year-old Pope was already in the operating theatre. The Pope was rushed to hospital on...
