PHOENIX, AZ (KTVK) — Arizona Senator John McCain has returned to Capitol Hill after he was treated at a Maryland hospital over the weekend for a tear in his Achilles tendon, his office said Monday morning.
According to a spokeswoman for the Arizona senator, McCain was treated at the Walter Reed Medical Center for a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon.
McCain’s office added that the senator was also at the hospital for “other normal and non-life-threatening side effects of cancer therapy.”
Sen. McCain has since returned to work and will be wearing a walking boot until his injured tendon is fully healed, according to his spokeswoman.
The senator posted a photo of himself wearing the walking boot and said, “I can’t tell you how much I hate wearing this boot!”
