Boebert Has Emergency Surgery for Blood Clot

Congress May Strip Feds of Controversial Spying Power

( – Rep. Lauren Boebert, a Republican representing Colorado in Congress, had an emergency surgery on Tuesday, April 2nd to remove a blood clot.

Boebert’s campaign released a statement on Tuesday night, explaining that the representative experienced severe swelling in her upper left leg, prompting her to go to the hospital. Doctors ordered a CT scan of her leg, during which they found an “acute blood clot.” Upon discovery of the blood clot, doctors scheduled her for surgery the following morning. The clot was removed and a stent was inserted during the surgery.

Doctors diagnosed Boebert with a rare vascular condition known as May-Thurner Syndrome. The condition compresses one of the main blood vessels in a person’s pelvis, which can cause deep vein thrombosis (also known as a blood clot in a deep vein, typically in the legs).

The statement from Boebert’s campaign added that the congresswoman is expected to make a full recovery and will likely have no significant health concerns from the issue following the surgery. The statement also said that she is in “good spirits” and will not have any issues performing her duties as a Representative once she has fully recovered. Boerbert expressed thanks to her medical team in the statement and said she was looking forward to getting back to work to fight for Colorado.

May-Thurner Syndrome is most likely to affect women aged 20 to 45 who have given birth. This means Boebert, who is 37 and has four children, was in the prime demographic of people affected by this condition.

Boebert has served two terms in Congress and is planning for a third. In 2020, she defeated Rep. Scott Tipton, a Republican who served in Congress for five terms. She narrowly defeated her Democratic opponent in Colorado’s 3rd District in 2022 for her second term. For her third term, she plans to run in the 4th District of Colorado, which is known to be more friendly to Republicans. The 4th District was represented since 2015 by Republican Ken Buck, who resigned on March 22nd of this year.
