Representative Lauren Boebert, a Republican from Colorado, stated on Tuesday that she had received a diagnosis of May-Thurner syndrome following emergency surgery for a blood clot in her leg. Following significant swelling in her upper left thigh, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert was brought to the UCHealth Medical Centre of the Rockies in Loveland yesterday afternoon. Following a CT scan, medical professionals discovered an acute blood clot. They determined that she had May-Thurner Syndrome, a rare disorder that impairs blood flow, according to a statement from Boebert’s campaign. Lauren Boebert had surgery this morning to pursue a third term.

Lauren Boebert Expected To Make Full Recovery Without Any Damage To Long-Term Health

The statement read, “Surgeons recommended and scheduled a surgery to remove the clot and insert a stent that will address the Congresswoman’s symptoms. The surgery was completed this morning.” She may or may not return to Washington, DC, for voting next week; at the moment, Republicans hold one of the thinnest House majorities in history. But the statement also said, “She is expected to make a full recovery with no significant concerns for her long-term health and no hindrance to her ability to perform her duties as a Congresswoman after taking time to rest as recommended by doctors.”

Lauren Boebert declared, “I’m looking forward to fully recovering and returning to Congress to continue fighting for Colorado.”
