Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Released From Hospital After Surgery

On Friday, the Supreme Court announced in a news release that Ginsburg, 85, had a pulmonary lobectomy in New York City that day to remove two nodules from her left lung.

"As testament to our nation's promise, the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants sits on the highest court in the land", she said.

"Justice Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital (Tuesday) and is recuperating at home", said Kathy Arberg, public information officer for the Supreme Court, in an email to reporters on Wednesday.

Ginsburg became a Supreme Court justice in 1993. Despite her health problems, Ginsburg has never missed arguments.

The growths were discovered during tests in November to diagnose and treat rib fractures Ginsburg sustained after a fall in her office, an incident that medics have said may have indirectly saved the Supreme Court justice's life.

The Supreme Court justice underwent treatment for colorectal cancer in 1999 and was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2009. Just three days after undergoing lung surgery, RBG is already getting back to work.

The operation last week marks Ginsburg's third cancer fight.

She has faced two prior cancer battles and had a stent placed to open a blocked artery in 2014.

Shortly after her surgery, Ginsburg cast a decisive vote in a 5-4 decision that blocked the Trump administration from prohibiting people from seeking asylum if they cross the border illegally.
