Arizona Senator John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye on Friday, July 14 at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, according to the hospital officials. Surgeons removed a 5-cm blood clot during a craniotomy.
The Mayo Clinic advises that “tissue pathology reports are pending within the next several days. The hospital reports that the senator is “resting comfortably at home and is in good condition. His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went ‘very well’ and he is in good spirits. Once the pathology information is available, further care will be discussed between doctors and the family.”
McCain’s apparent ill-health and confusion has made headlines recently.
“Senator McCain received excellent treatment at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, and appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff. He is in good spirits and recovering comfortably at home with his family. On the advice of his doctors, Senator McCain will be recovering in Arizona next week,” according to a statement released by his office.
