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
