Alabama Republican U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks' office is sharing good news about a recent procedure he underwent shortly after announcing on the House floor he had prostate cancer.
A spokesperson for the congressman says he is "recovering well" from a prostatectomy that he underwent Friday. He announced he would undergo the procedure during a Wednesday floor speech.
"The procedure went well according to Brooks’ family and the Congressman is recovering," his office said in a statement Friday evening, "Results from full pathology tests will be available in the coming weeks, but preliminary lab tests came back clear, indicating that all cancer was removed with the prostate."
Brooks and his family also said they are "very grateful" for the support they have received since his announcement.
Brooks, who has represented Alabama's fifth congressional district since 2011, is expected to return home to recover Saturday.
