Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman is expected to remain in the hospital for another 24-to-48 hours after undergoing a second surgery within four days.

As previously reported, Suleman -- a single mother of 14 -- underwent her first operation last Thursday to remove benign muscular tumors on her uterine wall, but complications with excessive bleeding forced doctors to suspend surgery at that time.

On Monday, with the complications now over, doctors at Kaiser Permanente in Bellflower, California performed a second operation to finish removing the tumors.

Her attorney, Jeff Czech, says the second procedure lasted three hours and everything went well. She is currently sedated and resting. (Photo: WENN)
