U.S. Senator John McCain underwent surgery in an Arizona hospital on Sunday to treat an intestinal infection and was in stable condition on Monday, his office said in a statement. McCain suffered an intestinal infection that required surgery, according to his congressional office. The infection was related to diverticulitis.

In a statement released by his office, the surgery was confirmed by staff and an update on his overall health was provided.

'He continues to inspire me everyday with his intense grit and determination, ' she added. "My husband @SenJohnMcCain is doing well after his surgery". Looking forward to getting back to Hidden Valley!' "He was diagnosed with glioblastoma last July".

The longtime Republican senator has been undergoing physical therapy related to brain cancer treatment at his family home near Sedona, Arizona, since December.

McCain, 81, made public last summer his brain cancer diagnosis, and he's been recovering from side effects of the cancer treatment at his home in Arizona since late previous year. As ever, he remains grateful to his physicians for their excellent care, and his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes.

Just a few months prior, the McCain family revealed that John had been diagnosed with brain cancer.

Flake said that when he last visited McCain, the senator had "briefing books on his lap" and was "watching the news". Meghan McCain also acknowledged that she knew when she took the job that there would be moments when she'd have to talk about her father's condition in real time. Some say three percent, some say 14 percent.

While in Arizona, McCain's office has issued regular statements about his positions on all manner of policy.

Doctors say a glioblastoma is a particularly aggressive type of brain tumor that digs tentacle-like roots into normal brain tissue. "Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation", the message explained.
