Rep. Mo Brooks 'recovering well' following cancer procedure

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks' surgery Friday to remove his prostate went well, his office said.

Brooks is expected to miss several important House votes next week that were rescheduled after his surgery was set. It is unlikely he would be cleared to return to Washington in time for the votes, The Hill reported.

In August, Brooks ran in the Alabama GOP primary race in an effort to be the Republican who would would run to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, after he was appointed Attorney General of the United States.

"Had I won, I would not have had time for my physical and [prostate-specific antigen blood] test".

Tuesday, Moore lost his bid for the Senate to Democrat Doug Jones in an unexpected defeat.

Brooks said that his doctor informed him of the "high-risk" prostate cancer diagnosis on Halloween evening.

He added, 'God works in mysterious ways'.

Brooks chose Dr. Scott Tully of Birmingham's Urology Centers of Alabama to perform a "radical prostatectomy" after further tests revealed the cancer had not spread beyond the prostate. Brooks said Wednesday he had "a very good cure prognosis".
