Norwood is expected to remain in intensive care for the next several days, but is up and walking, said spokesman John E. Stone.
The tumor was discovered last week as part of scheduled tests to monitor Norwood’s continued transplant recovery progress, according to a press release.
No follow-up chemo or radiation therapy is expected, and the cancer did not affect the new right lung, the press release stated.
Stone said Norwood is expected to be back at work in the House of Representatives within a few weeks, and is planning to seek re-election in 2006 in the newly drawn 10th Congressional District.
Get well soon Congressman.
