Jimmy Carter Breaks Hip, Recovering After Surgery

Former president Jimmy Carter undergoes surgery to repair broken hip after fall at his home

Former President Jimmy Carter was recovering from surgery after a fall on Monday morning, the Carter Center said.

"President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit", Carter Center spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said.

"President Carter's recovery is very dependent on where the injury occurred", noted Drucker, who directs the Center for Joint Reconstruction at Staten Island University Hospital, in New York City.

He is hopeful the state will allow him to roll over the unused limit to next season.

The milestone came despite a cancer diagnosis more than three years earlier.

In 2015, Mr Carter - who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 - disclosed that cancer that had been found on his liver had also been discovered on his brain. "I've had an exciting and adventurous and gratifying existence".

Carter's legacy since leaving office has long overshadowed his rocky White House tenure, where he lost after one term amid a hostage crisis.
