(Washington, DC)----U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) is resting comfortably today at a Washington, D.C., hospital following hernia surgery on Tuesday.  Congressman Coble is sitting in a chair and taking liquid nourishment at George Washington University Hospital following surgery that came after he complained of severe stomach pains earlier Tuesday.

  Rep. Coble‚Äôs Chief of Staff Ed McDonald said that the 6th District representative has not seen the surgeon yet today, so no word on when he might be discharged from the hospital.  The doctor who performed the surgery said that he repaired a right-side hernia that was causing the pain and saw no other concerns during the procedure.
