The surgery caused Justice Ginsburg to miss the last 3 days at the Supreme Court – for the first time in her storied 25-year career on the high court, TMZ reported. She's the 4th oldest person ever to sit on the Supreme Court.
The cancer was firstly discovered after she had fractured several ribs during a fall in November. The oldest member of the Supreme court, she's been working from home while recovering from her surgery.
Justice Ginsburg has battled cancer twice before — colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009. Despite her surgeries and recoveries, she has never before missed a single day of work.
