‘I just can’t!’ Dems in panic, Ruth Bader Ginsburg just had surgery to remove cancer from her lung

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had malignant nodules removed from her lung on Friday.

According to a release from the Supreme Court, Ginsburg is “resting comfortably” at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy, where two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were removed after being discovered “incidentally’ while she was being treated for rib fractures sustained in a fall last month, according to NBC News.

At 85 years of age, Ginsburg is the eldest member of the high court’s liberal faction.

The Supreme Court release can be seen below:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered incidentally during tests performed at George Washington University Hospital to diagnose and treat rib fractures sustained in a fall on November 7. According to the thoracic surgeon, Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation. Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease. Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days. Updates will be provided as they become available.

 

There was no evidence of any remaining cancer and her prognosis for recovery was said to be good.

 

…at least, as good as can be expected for an 85-year-old.
