Treasury Secretary Jack Lew left the hospital Wednesday after an overnight stay due to a mild fever following prostate surgery, his department said Wednesday morning.
"Secretary Lew was discharged from the hospital this morning and is now at home recuperating from his surgical procedure yesterday," said Treasury spokesperson Natalie Wyeth Earnest.
She said that Lew "is in good spirits, talking with staff, and looks forward to being back in the office next week."
Earlier, Earnest said that Lew's doctor had recommended he stay in the hospital overnight for observation "due to a low grade fever."
Lew, 58, is expected to resume his normal work schedule next week.
Lew, the former chief of staff to President Obama, became Treasury secretary last year.
