CHICAGO  — The Rev. Jesse Jackson has been released to a physical therapy center following gallbladder surgery. That’s according to a spokesman on Sunday.

An earlier statement from Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition says the 79-year-old civil rights leader experienced “abdominal discomfort” last month and was admitted to a Chicago hospital for an undisclosed surgery.

The group says that since Jackson has Parkinson’s disease he was released to a rehabilitation center for a “short period of exercise and therapy.”

He’s expected to rejoin his family soon.
