Rep. Lauren Boebert Undergoes Surgery for Rare Vascular Condition

Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert was admitted to a hospital in Loveland on Monday after experiencing extreme swelling in her left leg, where doctors diagnosed her with a rare vascular condition known as May-Thurner Syndrome, according to her campaign.

The syndrome, affecting the flow of blood through the leg, is more common in women aged 20-45, especially those who have had children. Boebert underwent surgery on Tuesday for an acute blood clot associated with the condition at UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies, as confirmed by her campaign manager, Drew Sexton.

With the exact cause of the syndrome still unknown, factors such as dehydration, travel, and prolonged sitting may contribute to its development. Boebert, 37, and a mother of four, joins the demographic more susceptible to this condition.

Following the surgical procedure that included the removal of the blood clot and insertion of a stent to improve blood flow, Boebert is expected to make a full recovery without any long-term health concerns, with no hindrance to her duties as a Congresswoman, said reports from her campaign.

Her health update comes just days ahead of the Colorado Republicans state party assembly in Pueblo, where Boebert was planning to attend, as per her campaign. However, the event’s attendance is now contingent on her recovery progress.

Boebert, who recently announced her candidacy in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, expressed gratitude to Dr. Rebecca Bade and the healthcare team at UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies for their care during her treatment. She is eager to resume her work in Congress, advocating for the people of Colorado, as stated in the press release by the Pueblo Chieftain.
