Michigan Congressman back at work after cancer surgery

Congressman Dan Kildee

Less than a month after undergoing cancer surgery...Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee is back at work. Doctors removed a cancerous tumor from the Flint Democrat’s tonsil April 17th.

In a video message, Kildee says it’s been an ordeal.

“It’s going to take a little bit longer for me to get back to 100%.  But here I am back in the office, going to work, not a full schedule yet back I’ll get there pretty soon.” said Kildee.

Kildee says he does NOT need any additional treatment, but doctors will continue to monitor his health.
