[ad_1]

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.).
