Lauren Boebert Undergoes Surgery After Being Diagnosed With Blood Clot

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) recently underwent surgery following her admission to a Colorado hospital. During her stay, doctors discovered an acute blood clot, prompting the need for immediate medical intervention, according to her campaign.

37-year-old Boebert was admitted to UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colorado, following swelling in her leg, as stated in a campaign release on Tuesday.

After undergoing a CT scan, doctors made a concerning discovery. Boebert was diagnosed with May-Thurner Syndrome, a rare condition that affects a vein in the pelvis, due to an acute blood clot.

Boebert underwent a successful surgery on Tuesday morning, where doctors skillfully removed a blood clot and inserted a stent.

According to a statement from Boebert’s campaign, May-Thurner Syndrome tends to impact women aged 20-45 who have experienced childbirth.

The Republican congresswoman expressed her gratitude towards the doctors at UCHealth and eagerly anticipated her return to her duties in Congress.

Boebert is currently engaged in a fiercely contested GOP primary as she vies for victory in the race for Colorado’s 4th district House seat.

Last year, Boebert made the announcement that she would be changing districts and pursuing the seat previously held by Republican Rep. Ken Buck, who recently retired.

A special election has been scheduled for June 25, which happens to align with the Republican primary election, to select a successor for Buck for the remaining duration of his term.

Boebert is not currently seeking to replace Buck, as she intends to complete her second term representing the 3rd district.

However, she is participating in the primary election, where she is up against 10 other Republican candidates who are competing for a spot on the November ballot for the 4th district.
