Sen. Tim Johnson Recovering From Gallbladder Surgery

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson will remain in a Sioux Falls, S.D., hospital a few more days but is expected to make a full recovery from gallbladder surgery.

Doctors at Avera McKennan Hospital said Wednesday that Johnson remained on an antibiotic but was doing well and feeling better.

The South Dakota Democrat says he has been up and moving around his room and looks forward to getting home.

Johnson was admitted Sunday with a high fever and underwent surgery to remove his gallbladder on Tuesday.

Doctors have said Johnson's current ailments are not related to a life-threatening brain hemorrhage he suffered about four years ago.
