Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is already up and working despite undergoing surgery for lung cancer just 72 hours earlier.
Supreme court spokesperson Kathy Arberg, said that Ginsburg remained in New York at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on Sunday, as she recuperates from the cancer surgery.
Ginsburg underwent surgery Friday to remove two malignant growths in her left lung. Doctors say there is no evidence of any remaining disease.
Now 85, the justice has been treated for cancer two other times. Last month she cracked three ribs in a fall at the court.
Doctors found no evidence of disease elsewhere in her body after the pulmonary lobectomy, and no further treatment is planned, according to an earlier court statement.
Ginsburg was only just hospitalized in November after she fractured several ribs in a fall. It was while she was being treated for those injuries that doctors identified two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung.
The court next meets on Jan. 7. Despite her health problems, Ginsburg has never missed arguments.
