Ebert Recovering From Cancer Surgery
CHICAGO (AP) ó Film critic Roger Ebert is recuperating from follow-up surgery for papillary cancer, a common and curable type of thyroid cancer.
The 60-year-old movie reviewer for the Chicago Sun-Times and television audiences underwent the procedure Thursday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
“It went very successfully,” a hospital spokeswoman said.
A year ago, doctors removed Ebert’s thyroid gland and selected lymph nodes in his neck. They said at the time that Ebert was expected to make a complete recovery.
Ebert said in a statement Friday that he would attend screenings on Monday and would cover the Oscar nominations on Tuesday.
“In other words,” he said, “it’s business as usual.”
