Posted on 07/16/2017 4:31:09 PM PDT by John W
The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday.
Usually, a blood clot in this area would be a very concerning issue, said Dr. Nrupen Baxi, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.
He added, The recovery time from a craniotomy is usually a few weeks at least a week or two.
A statement from the Mayo Clinic Hospital said that the senator was recovering well and in good spirits at home, and that tissue pathology reports would come back in several days.

Game of the Week! Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese. Seems it always was either a Dordger or Yankee game.
Yes. it was Ol Diz and Pee Wee Reese.
My Dad and I used to never miss the game of the week because of those two.
He slud into our home.
I had heard they removed a 2 inch blood clot above is eye, before they realized it was actually his brain.
The prognosis is good; he wasn’t using it.
Um, pelosi is house, not senate.
How about a manditory retirement age for congress?
He should just get the surgery done, vacate his Senate seat, and go home to his family.
I guess he could die.
McCain says the people get Obamacare Death Panels.
Therefore, thumb up or thumb down??
I vote down.
The R governor
Picture on Drudge of McCain looks like he had a stroke.
Well said! And right on the money. Thank you Bonemaker. You can forgive all the crap he did in Hanoi because at least he was being tortured or in fear of continued torture if he didn’t sing his guts out. But you can’t forgive all the crapolla he’s done since the day he became a US senator. He’s a traitor with a capital T and I can’t repeat the other words that I’m thinking. And as to the remark about families what about all the families that he destroyed and the blood that’s on his hands for all the gun running and gun deals he did from Syria to the Ukraine, How much blood is on McCain’s hands besides what was in his brain. Too bad it was a craniotomy and not a lobotomy. Here’s hoping this is the last we hear from Senator McCain.
It’s pining for the fjords yet?
Hope Sen. McCain makes a full recovery.
McCAin was a good man in the Senate until he lost his first presidential primary to George W. Bush in North Carolina, who lied about McCain’s plans for veteran’s care.
After that McCain became an intolerable switch hitter on the GOP.
His gang of 14 work has nearly destroyed America.And is the primary reason he lost to Obama because the GOP was not united behind him.He was a horrible choice for a presidential candidate and led the nation to 8 years of liberal fascist socialism under Obama.
No wonder people want him gone.
“No sense holding up business in the senate then.”
Just another excuse by those lame GOP Sens/Reps. Need to have a list of excuses posted. Too computer illiterate here to star tone .
“star tone” = start one.
“Must show sympathy” - Who are you, Mick Jagger?
Pleased to meet you, hope you’ve guessed my name. (I’m recovering from a craniotomy).
80 past time to retire.
AMAZED at the lack of interest and investigation by the media into this story, but then again he’s their go to GOP when they need a GOP to bash the GOP so they are avoiding it and giving him a favor.
Bottom line - very serious condition, probably no flying for quite some time. Also, what were his symptoms????
