Sen. John McCain recovering from surgery for intestinal infection

AZ Sen. McCain had surgery over the weekend as cancer fight continues

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is resting in an Arizona hospital after he was admitted over the weekend for surgery for an infected intestine.He is listed in stable condition according to a report from CNN.

He has largely stayed out of the public spotlight since summer, when he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer.

Doctors not involved in McCain's treatment told AZCentral that complications like the one the senator was treated for is common in people undergoing brain-cancer treatment.

McCain's Mayo Clinic care team declined to be interviewed about the senator's health. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Beau Biden, son of former vice president Joe Biden. While undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, McCain regularly attended Congress. "McCain has been participating in physical therapy at his home in Cornville, Ariz., as he recovers from the side effects of cancer treatment", McCain's office said in a statement.


If McCain were to resign before the end of May, Gov. Doug Ducey, R, would appoint an interim senator and there would be a special election in November.

McCain, who lost the 2008 US presidential election to Barack Obama, is serving his sixth term as a senator.

Meghan McCain also acknowledged that she knew when she took the job that there would be moments when she'd have to talk about her father's condition in real time.

The 81-year-old Republican was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, in July 2017 while undergoing a procedure to remove a blood clot at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix.
