Eshoo recovering from appendectomy

U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, underwent an appendectomy June 7 and spent the week recuperating from the successful operation, her office said.

Rep. Eshoo, a resident of Menlo Park, canceled her scheduled speech at the June 8 Gunn High School graduation. Her office arranged a substitute speaker, U.S. Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D- San Jose, who was a member of Gunn's first graduating class in 1966.

The laparoscopic appendectomy took place at Stanford Hospital and was performed by Dr. Karen Whang. Rep. Eshoo's office reported that were no complications.
