Rice returns home following surgery
Updated: 2004-11-21 11:34

National security adviser Condoleezza Rice returned home Saturday after a one-night hospital stay where she was treated for noncancerous growths in her uterus.

"She's out of the hospital and doing well," said White House spokesman Fred Jones.

Rice had uterine fibroid embolization at Georgetown University Hospital on Friday.

Uterine fibroid embolization blocks blood flow to fibroids, which are benign tumors in the uterus. For some women it is an alternative to hysterectomy.

Rice could return to work as early as Monday, Jones said.

President Bush announced on Tuesday that Rice, 50, will succeed Secretary of State Colin Powell. Her nomination must be confirmed by the Senate.
