First lady Melania Trump is recovering well from surgery to treat a benign kidney condition, President Donald Trump said Tuesday. "Thank you for so much love and support!" he tweeted.

The White House did not say exactly why Melania needed the procedure - but medical experts say it's minimally invasive.

Mrs. Trump, who has been gradually raising her profile as first lady, recently hosted her first state dinner and launched a public awareness campaign to help children.

But oddly enough-or then again, maybe not oddly at all-Trump's update on his wife was actually not his first tweet of the afternoon.

Thanking all the well wishers, Trump said that his wife will be released within two or three days.

President Trump spoke with Mrs. Trump on Monday morning before the procedure and later spoke with the doctor after it was over, according to a White House official who asked not to be identified describing the private communications.

Embolization is a common medical procedure used to cut off blood flow to treat a range of conditions, from uterine fibroids to deadly tumors. Vice President Mike Pence, however, said in a speech Monday night that the procedure was "long-planned".

"So can they please just let it go and stop pretending?"

Most of the time, these benign tumors are found when people undergo medical scans for another reason, but sometimes people have pain or other symptoms, Kowalczyk said. Any time you are doing an embolization, it's because something might bleed.

The White House has cited the first lady's privacy for not offering any additional details on her condition.

On Monday, May 14, we learned on NBC's Today that Melania Trump underwent a surgical procedure for a benign kidney health problem.
