BREAKING: Doctors Release MASSIVE News About John McCain’s Health

Arizona Sen. John McCain, a vehement anti-Trumper, underwent surprise surgery over the weekend, and doctors just gave a major update to his status.

McCain had to have a blood clot removed from behind his eye in what doctors called a “routine” procedure on Friday evening. As a result, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was forced to delay the vote on the healthcare overhaul because the GOP can’t afford to lose any support.

At first, it was believed that McCain would only be out for about a week, which was suggested by a statement from his office. However, the Daily Mail is reporting that doctors believe his condition is worse than he’s letting on.

From the Daily Mail:

McCain’s absence gave McConnell little choice, with Republicans so divided that the subtraction of a single ‘yes’ vote could doom the healthcare bill.

The statement put out by McCain seemed to imply that it would take him a week before he could return to work.

Medical experts interviewed by The New York Times said, however, that it could take at least two weeks, perhaps more, for McCain to recover given the nature of the procedure.

McCain’s office released a statement saying that doctors took out a two-inch blood clot from ‘above his left eye’ in what was a ‘minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision.’

The operation was ordered ‘following a routine annual physical.’

A craniotomy is the removal of a part of the bone that makes up the skull.

Medical experts say that an eyebrow incision is needed if the surgeon needs to reach a clot that is either in or near the left frontal lobes of the brain.

‘Usually, a blood clot in this area would be a very concerning issue,’ said Dr. Nrupen Baxi, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.

‘The recovery time from a craniotomy is usually a few weeks,’ he said.

Granted, McCain is likely getting the best treatment in the country because he’s rich and in Congress, but recovery times are recovery times regardless, and someone his age isn’t going to recover with any sort of speed. So odds are, he’s going to be out for quite some time, which could really slow down President Trump’s agenda.

I don’t know about you, but I think this would be the perfect time for McCain to retire.
