Florida Sen. Bill Nelson underwent prostate cancer surgery Monday that his office called "a complete success."
Bill wants to thank all the people in Florida and elsewhere who sent prayers and well wishes," his wife, Grace, said in a statement following the operation. "The doctors, nurses and staff caring for him are all just great."
His office said Nelson's recovery is expected to take a least a week. The senator disclosed the incidence of the disease and his planned surgery last Thursday.
