John Kerry back in Boston, will have leg surgery Tuesday at Mass. General

The Boston Globe—June 2, 2015

Kay Lazar and Matt Viser of The Boston Globe report that Secretary of State John F. Kerry flew home to Boston on Monday night, where he will undergo surgery on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, at Massachusetts General Hospital to repair a fracture to his right leg sustained during a cycling accident in France. 

Among other concerns, there has been question about air travel for Kerry to return to Geneva for final conversations with Iran. 

"He is healthy, and a young 71. This guy was bicycling. As long as he didn’t have a terrible injury it’s possible," he may be able to fly by the end of the month, said Dr. Michael Parks, a surgeon specializing in joint replacement at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, and a spokesman for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
