U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan is recovering after undergoing surgery Monday to repair a herniated disc in his back.
"The operation was successful and the congressman is expected to make a full and speedy recovery," his office said Tuesday morning in a news release.
Buchanan, 62, on Saturday postponed a scheduled appearance in Holmes Beach after his office said he had thrown out his back.
