Fetterman Discharged from Lancaster Hospital

Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman was discharged from Lancaster General Hospital on Sunday after a nine-day stay following a stroke.

Fetterman, 52, who captured the Democratic nomination for the open U.S. Senate seat, was admitted to LGH and underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker with a defibrillator to assist in his recovery.

 

“I am feeling great, but per my doctor’s orders, and Gisele’s orders, I am going to continue to rest and recover,” Fetterman said in a statement. Later this week I will have a follow-up visit with my doctors at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital.

I want to take a moment and thank everyone; Gisele, myself, and the kids have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from folks across the commonwealth. Thank you everyone so much for having our backs and supporting us through this.”

  1. You are in a hospital for 9 days that is serious. A relative had open heart and he was out in 3 days. You have to be really be sick to be in for 9 days.
