Pataki's second surgery in NYC yields no date for hospital releasePosted: Updated:
Governor George Pataki (R-NY) is recovering Wednesday at a New York City hospital after undergoing surgery for a second time in less than a week.
The governor was transferred to New York Presbyterian Hospital Tuesday from Hudson Valley Hospital Center, where he had surgery to remove his appendix. His second surgery Tuesday involved removing a blockage from his intestines. Doctors say the blockage was connected to his appendectomy.
A spokesperson for Pataki says the governor is resting comfortably after the surgery, but no date for his release has been set yet.
