Default Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy Friday in New York. The Supreme Court announced the news in a statement.

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City,” the court’s public information office noted. “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.”

They added that she is resting comfortably and will not currently need further treatment for the condition.

“According to the thoracic surgeon, Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation,” the release said. “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.”

Justice Ginsberg needs to hang on for another 13 Months or THE Donald gets another SCOTUS choice.

Removing two malignant tumors at 85 years of age is no picnic. No picnic for someone half her age. If I were a Dem, I would be calling my doctor to make sure I had an endless supply of Xanax because I would be popping those bad boys like M&M's.

Yep, and they'll be frantically looking for or inventing things to impeach Trump for.

They didn't "remove" 2 tumors,... they did a pulmonary lobectomy,
meaning an entire lung lobe was removed, the left lung has 2 lobes, the right has 3.

Hers was the left, so there is only one lobe remaining there.

This procedure, in and of itself is survivable, but, she is 85 years old.

The nodes were not found by any proactive test. they were discovered only because she broke ribs and they were x-rayed. that tells me they were well advanced, most likely at stage 4.

I'm confident that the surgeon felt that she didn't have any other viable survival options.

If that is the case then PG said it best. Bless her and I hope for comfort and healing.
