Holland returns to hospital after surgery to get shunt

PLANTERSVILLE — A longtime state lawmaker was back in a Jackson hospital to have a medical shunt installed to help with drainage from the gallbladder surgery he underwent last week.

Democratic Rep. Steve Holland of Plantersville was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson last week after having abdominal pain. The first surgery took about three hours followed by Wednesday’s procedure.

Rep. Bobby Moak, D-Bogue Chitto, told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal Holland was resting comfortably and improving at UMMC. Moak says Holland’s recuperation may take longer than previously thought and that Holland would not return to the Legislature this week.

Holland has been in the state House since 1984 where he represents portions of Lee County.
