The Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recovery from cancer surgery is "on track" and no further treatment is required.

Dr. Robert Miller, a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said he did not think it was "alarming" Ginsburg was not back at work three weeks after surgery but that he would be concerned "if her activity level does not improve over the next few weeks". On Friday, the court released a written statement saying there is no additional evidence of cancer.

Just before Christmas, Justice Ginsburg had a pulmonary lobectomy to remove two cancerous nodules from her lungs.

In early November, the 85-year-old justice suffered a fall that broke three ribs on her left side.

A source familiar with the conversations confirms to CNN that the White House legal counsel has been in communication with outside allies and conservative groups about next steps if something should happen to Ginsburg.

Despite that, President Trump may already be thinking that a third Supreme Court appointment could be a possibility. "She's barely two weeks out", Dr. Raja Flores, chief of the division of thoracic surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, told CNBC.
