Senator McCain has intestinal surgery, is recovering in Phoenix

McCain, 81, is being treated at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona for an infection linked to diverticulitis, which occurs when pouches form on the walls of the colon. McCain's office said Monday, April 16, 2018, he is in stable condition at a Phoenix hospital after intestinal surgery needed to stem an infection.

The longtime Republican senator has been undergoing physical therapy related to brain cancer treatment at his family home near Sedona, Arizona, since December.

A statement said that Republican senator, who has been fighting brain cancer since a diagnosis previous year, is hospitalized in a "stable condition", The Washington Post reports.

"John McCain's recent battle with brain cancer underscores the fighting spirit and resilience of this remarkable man, who continues to crusade for the causes he believes in, despite advancing health issues and daunting odds", the HBO release said.

"Senator McCain and his family are grateful to the senator's excellent care team, and appreciate the support and prayers they continue to receive from people all over the country", his office said.

Among the risk factors for developing diverticulitis is age, with those over 40 more at risk. Flake said that McCain has been monitoring what's been going on in Washington closely - "when I visited him last", Flake said, "he had briefing books on his lap, and he was watching the news".

Last month, publisher Simon & Schuster announced that the senator is writing "his most personal book in years".
