Doogan back at work after brain surgery

Posted: Wednesday, January 19, 2011

JUNEAU — An Anchorage lawmaker says he feels great, roughly six months after having a brain tumor removed.

Democratic state Rep. Mike Doogan says he still has some vision problems. But he says, overall, his progress has been better than expected.

Doogan was back at work Tuesday when the Legislature convened in Juneau.

Last summer, his office disclosed that he was undergoing surgery after an MRI revealed a meningioma. Such cases typically involve noncancerous tumors, and Doogan said his was benign.

He said in a year or so, he expects to have no lingering effects, short some scars.
