U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee is out of surgery at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, Texas, and his family indicates the procedure went well.

Nunnelee’s family is with him at the hospital, and he is currently resting comfortably.

Tests at MD Anderson last week confirmed that the small intracranial mass on the right side of Nunnelee’s brain is isolated.

Nunnelee was admitted to a Washington, D.C., hospital after experiencing nausea and fatigue on May 7. During an MRI scan, doctors found a “small abnormality” on the right side of his brain. Doctors determined it to be a small intracranial mass that appeared to be “an isolated problem that can be remedied through surgery.”

He was released on May 9.

The Tupelo Republican is in his second term representing Mississippi’s First Congressional District. He serves on the House Appropriations and House Budget Committees.
