CONCORD - Former governor John H. Sununu said he had successful, quadruple bypass heart surgery in Boston after suffering shortness of breath last week.
Sununu, 76, had the procedure last Friday in St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston only after he went to see his doctor earlier in the week.
“I feel very lucky,” Sununu said. “The staff here at St. Elizabeth’s have been wonderful to work with.”
His office said a coronary angioplasty procedure last Thursday showed a significant blockage of his arteries and they decided to go with the bypass on Friday.
Sununu served as chief of staff to former President George H. Bush.
Sununu resides in Hampton Falls. He served three terms as governor and later chaired the state Republican Party. He has been active in recent months promoting his book about the Bush presidency, "The Quiet Man."
"The governor is recovering very well from the procedure. He is with his family and expects to return home within the week," Sununu’s office said.
