Spelman recovering after surgery

Thursday, November 6, 2014 by Michael Kanin

Council Member Bill Spelman had surgery to remove “a small growth” on his adrenal gland two weeks ago. In an email statement issued Wednesday, Spelman said that “the operation was successful, and after some follow up treatment for an infection, I am recovering at home.” Spelman had surgery in 2012 to remove a tumor from his pancreas. He said he is planning on making it to today’s Austin City Council meeting, but will play it by ear.
