Nathan Adrian Undergoes Lymph Node Surgery


Nathan Adrian underwent a Laparaoscopic Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection procedure after recently being diagnosed with cancer.

The USA Olympic gold medalist posted the success of the surgery on social media.

“They took out some of my lymph nodes that cancer may have spread to with the help of a robot.” Adrian wrote. “Going to do everything we can to get back to normal life as quickly as possible.”

    Praying for clear lymph node results. You have been such a positive role model for the USA, and in the swimming world for boys and girls alike, as well as the parents. We all wish you a clean bill of health, and a lifetime of NED. Keep a positive attitude always!
