Boebert campaign reveals her emergency surgery for blood clot

The campaign of GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert said the Colorado lawmaker went to the hospital after experiencing “severe swelling in her upper left leg” and underwent emergency surgery to remove a blood clot.

Doctors indicated the lawmaker is expected to make a full recovery following the procedure and diagnosed her with May-Thurner syndrome, a rare condition that affects blood flow.

“I’m looking forward to making a full recovery and getting back to Congress to continue fighting for Colorado,” Boebert said in a statement released by her campaign.

Boebert is in the midst of a competitive bid to win a new seat in Colorado after opting to run in the newly open eastern Colorado-based seat once held by former Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.).
