John McCain’s Recovery From Surgery Could Take Longer Than Expected

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, and the recovery time may be longer than expected.

Doctors originally said the surgery – which required an incision through the eye, a surgical opening into the skull – would require a week of rest.




Some experts are expressing growing skepticism, saying the surgery was more serious than is being indicated. They believe he will require two weeks to recover – something which could drastically delay congressional attempts to repeal Obamacare.


Via the New York Times:

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.

The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.

We’re very thankful to hear the Senator is recovering fairly well. Prayers to he and his family.


There are political matters at hand, sadly, that are being effected.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has decided to “defer consideration of the Better Care Act” while McCain is recovering.


The New York Times report speculates that McCain may have been suffering from symptoms of the clot during a bizarre line of questioning for former FBI director James Comey.


Let’s hope McCain fully recovers from this procedure, but do you think McConnell should continue to stall Obamacare repeal while he’s recovering from a surgery of this nature?
