Ruth Bader Ginsburg back to working after surgery

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is working from the hospital as she recovers from surgery she underwent last week. 

A spokeswoman for the highest court, Kathy Arberg, told The Associated Press that Ginsburg remained at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York on Sunday. 


The AP added that she is up and working as she recovers. No details were provided on when she might return home. 

The news regarding Ginsburg's condition comes days after she had surgery to remove two malignant nodules on a lung. 

Her surgery occurred after the oldest justice fractured three ribs in a fall in her office. The nodules were discovered during tests to treat her broken ribs. 

Doctors have said there is no evidence that the disease is still there, AP noted. 

Ginsburg, 85, has been treated for cancer two previous times.
