Sen. Rand Paul Recovering From Lung Surgery

TUESDAY, Aug. 6, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- A part of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's lung that was damaged in a 2017 attack was removed on the weekend.

The Republican lawmaker and former presidential candidate was tackled by a neighbor outside his Kentucky home. He tweeted Monday about the surgery performed in Tennessee, the Associated Press reported.

Paul, 56, is recovering at home, a spokeswoman said.

"Sen. Paul will need to recover from his surgery for a few weeks, which will limit his travel and events," spokeswoman, Kelsey Cooper said in a statement, the AP reported.

"He will continue to work on diplomacy, legislative and constituent issues during that time," she added.
