Justice Ginsburg leaves hospital after cancer surgery

Justice Ginsburg leaves hospital after cancer surgery

Ginsburg underwent surgery Friday to remove two malignant growths in her left lung. Ginsburg has battled cancer before, but her diagnosis seems optimist since no further treatment has been planned, and there's now no evidence of any remaining disease. The nodules were found after Ginsburg fractured three ribs in November.

The court is slated to resume its work on January 7, 2019.

At 85, Ginsburg is the high court's eldest sitting justice.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg might just be the toughest woman on the planet. She was released from a hospital the next day.

The operation last week marks Ginsburg's third cancer fight.

The fallout over McGurk's departure and the Syria withdrawal brought sharp rebukes from former officials and some conservatives. The pocket is home to about 15,000 people, among them 2,000 IS fighters, according to USA military estimates.

Arberg said in a statement Friday that no other growths were found in scans before the procedure and that no additional treatment was planned.

Ginsburg has been treated for cancer twice - undergoing surgery for colorectal cancer in 1999 and for pancreatic cancer in 2009.

From her hospital bed, Ginsburg cast a decisive vote blocking the Trump administration's attempt to stop anyone who crosses the United States border illegally from claiming asylum.

Shortly after her surgery, Ginsburg cast a decisive vote in a 5-4 decision that blocked the Trump administration from prohibiting people from seeking asylum if they cross the border illegally. This year she was the subject of an award-winning documentary and a fictionalized biopic starring Felicity Jones.

Ginsburg is one of the four liberal members of the Supreme Court, and is somewhat of an icon among progressives.
