Ousted Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos, already listed in very critical condition with heart, lung and kidney failure, underwent a three-hour operation Tuesday to drain an abscess on his pancreas, a hospital spokeswoman said today.

Marcos had a relapse on May 19 at the St. Francis Medical Center and was said by hospital spokesman Eugene Tiwanak to be likely to die at any time.
