Longtime Illinois Valley politician continues recovery after cancer surgery

Posted by wlpo on August 21, 2015

It’s been a month since State Representative Frank Mautino had surgery to remove his esophageal cancer.

Mautino says his recovery is coming along great, and he thanks all the doctors and hospital staff who made the surgery as easy as possible. He also thanks the many supporters who sent good vibes his way the last several weeks.

Mautino is scheduled to have a procedure Friday that will take out the remaining tubes in his esophagus. After that, he will take a few tests, but the procedures will be over.

The representative is already back to a normal schedule in Springfield, or as Mautino says, “As normal as Springfield can be.”
