Brain surgery on a Republican congressman from north Mississippi has at least temporarily harmed his ability to talk and move the left side of his body.

Rep. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo had surgery Monday at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to remove a small mass on his brain.

Thursday, Nunnelee's office said he is "experiencing difficulty" with speech and movement. The statement says Nunnelee will remain hospitalized until next week and then be moved to a rehabilitation facility in Houston. It says physicians believe Nunnelee's speech and mobility will be restored with rehabilitation.

Spokeswoman Elizabeth Parks had said before surgery that Nunnelee's recovery was expected to take several weeks.

The 55-year-old was first elected to the U.S. House in 2010 and is seeking re-election.
