BALTIMORE, Maryland — Congressman Alan Nunnelee has been moved to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, to start radiation and chemotherapy, three weeks after he underwent brain surgery in Texas.
His office said yesterday that the 55-year-old Republican also will continue rehabilitation to improve speech and left-side mobility problems that started after the surgery.
Nunnelee was hospitalized in May after experiencing nausea and fatigue. Surgeons at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston removed a small mass from his brain June 9.
Before transferring to Johns Hopkins, Nunnelee had been undergoing rehabilitation at TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston. It’s the same place then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords underwent rehab after she was shot.
Nunnelee, of Tupelo, was first elected to Congress in 2010 and is running again.
