Brain surgery for Katie Hopkins

The outspoken columnist was having the procedure in a bid to cure epilepsy.

Mail Online columnist Katie Hopkins is stable, upbeat and tweeting away less than 24 hours after undergoing brain surgery in a bid to cure her epilepsy. Doctors spent 12 hours operating on the lesion in Katie's head on Monday in an operation that normally takes between four and eight hours. Though it was 'a little trickier than the surgeons expected', tests have come back positive and all her vital organs were unscathed, Katie's agent told Daily Mail Online on Tuesday night. Propped up in bed enjoying her first meal in two days, the 41-year-old mother-of-three took to Twitter on Tuesday to update her 650,000 followers. "A tweet from the High Dependency Unit to give you bad news. Even 12 hours in surgery and the removal of part of my brain has not shut me up,' she wrote. It will be days until doctors can draw up a detailed diagnosis of their findings. For now, however, Katie and her husband Mark say they are simply relieved that she made it through the surgery without any major complications as it could have left her with impaired vision or speech deficiency.
