Lauren Boebert is back on the campaign trail already days after emergency operation for a bloody clot as she thanks well-wishers who have sent their 'prayers and support'

Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is back on the campaign trail just days after undergoing emergency surgery to remove a blood clot in her leg, as she thanked her supporters for their “prayers and support.”

The 37-year-old, who faces a tough re-election campaign in a new district, has now met voters again and is hailed by her team as a “tough lady” who is “earning every vote.”

He was admitted to a Colorado hospital on Monday complaining of severe swelling in his upper left leg, according to his campaign.

There, she was diagnosed with May-Thurner syndrome, a rare vascular condition that affects a vein in the pelvis and can lead to deep vein thrombosis, which her spokesperson suggested her condition could be caused by sitting too long.

She was quickly admitted that day for surgery to remove the clot, and had a stent placed on Tuesday morning, but has since declared, “I’m not slowing down!”

Boebert is trying to win a seat in the state’s 4th Congressional District in 2024 after winning two terms in the 3rd, and was recently photographed at a re-election event on March 27.

Dr. Rebecca Bade, who worked on Boebert’s case at UCHealth Rocky Mountain Medical Center, said people who undergo the procedure the congresswoman received “can live and work as they did in the past after a brief recovery”.

He received well wishes from former New York congressman and ally George Santos in X.

“Lauren had surgery and it came out fine and she is doing well,” he wrote of his “dear friend.”

What is May-Thurner syndrome?

May-Thurner syndrome is a rarely diagnosed condition in which patients develop iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

This is usually because the right common iliac artery compresses the left common iliac vein against the lumbar spine.

It has been shown to be present in more than 20 percent of the population; however, it is rarely considered in the differential diagnosis of DVT, particularly in patients with other risk factors.

It is most common in adults between 20 and 50 years old, including women who have been pregnant.

Boebert surprised Colorado Republicans last Christmas when she announced her decision to leave the 3rd District and run to replace outgoing Rep. Ken Buck in the 4th District.

Boebert, the controversial MAGA Republican now endorsed by former President Donald Trump, adopted the ‘carpet’ label and traveled the district to convince voters she’s ready to fight for them, despite the drama surrounding her personal life. and their complicated divorce. ex husband.

He has been fighting accusations from liberals and even some moderate Republicans that he has a reckless character.

His tenure has been rocked by a series of scandals, most famously when he was asked to leave a performance of Beetlejuice for sexually groping his date.

Boebert faces at least 11 other Republican candidates in the June 25 primary.

However, her popularity among the MAGA base may still save her as she faces a crowded primary and the local Republican Party gave her a boost last week.

A Colorado Republican panel made a surprising decision Thursday night by choosing former Mayor Greg Lopez as the likely replacement for U.S. Rep. Ken Buck until the November general election.

While Lopez is likely to win in the deep red district, he will be a surrogate and plans to resign after the winner of the general election takes office in January.

For two of Boebert’s primary opponents, who came in second and third, running in the special election would have been a blessing and allowed them to be in office before the November general election.
