6ABC's Jim Gardner and Cecily Tynan.

6ABC anchor Jim Gardner is back in the hospital just a week after he returned from a month-long medical leave.

Gardner tweeted Wednesday morning that he's seeking additional treatment for a "severe prostate and [urinary] tract infection" and he's not exactly happy about it.

A spokesperson with 6ABC declined to comment as to when fans should see him back.

A bicep tendon injury kept Gardner off airwaves for the majority of August. On the show's broadcast Aug. 5, he said that his bicep tendon was "hanging by a threat" and he would be absent while he recovered from surgery.

Gardner celebrated 40 years with the news station in July.
