Menino Having Prostate Surgery on Friday

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is scheduled to have surgery later this week at Brigham and Women’s Hospital to reduce his enlarged prostate. “This Friday Mayor Menino is having elective surgery to correct a very common issue among men of his age. The elective surgery will take a few hours and require a few days in the hospital and some recovery at home,” said Dot Joyce, press secretary for Boston. “The Mayor is expected to make a full and complete recovery. The Mayor and his family thank you again for your tremendous outpouring of support and concern and wants to reassure everyone that he will be fine.”  The mayor’s primary care physician, Dr. Charles Morris said the surgery would shrink the mayor’s prostate in an effort to give him a better ability to empty his bladder, he told the Globe. And Morris wanted to make it clear Menino’s surgery is not due to prostate cancer, he told the Globe, “This is being done for a benign, harmless condition that, nevertheless, causes symptoms that are noxious and unpleasant.” SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Mayor Menino ‘Resting Comfortably’ After Leg Surgery

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is recovering after undergoing surgery on Saturday to repair a leg fracture. The injury occurred Friday while Menino was visiting a school in Dorchester. The mayor twisted his ankle and fractured his distal fibula—the smaller of two bones in his lower right leg, 7 News Boston reported. Menino underwent surgery Saturday morning at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The surgery involved the placement of a plate and screws to fix the broken bone, 7 News reported. The mayor sent out an update on his Twitter account on Monday at around noon, writing: “Thanks to all for well wishes. Surgery to repair fracture of distal fibula went well & without complication. Mayor is resting comfortably.” Menino will be wearing a walking boot and will require the use of crutches for a few months, 7 News reported. There was no official word on when the mayor will be released from the hospital. South End Patch
