Philhellene British comedian Stephen Fry recovering from prostate cancer surgery (video)

He said it all seemed to go pretty well

Stephen Fry is recovering from surgery for prostate cancer and said “it all seemed to go pretty well”.

The broadcaster, who had his operation in early January, said on his website: “They took the prostate out,” adding: “So far as we know it’s all been got.”

He said it was an “aggressive” cancer and surgeons removed 11 lymph nodes.

He added: “For the moment I’m fit and well and happy and I just wanted to let you know because rumours had started to swirl.”

In the video on his site, he said: “You have to recover and that’s what I’ve been doing.”

He said his family and “my darling, darling husband” had been “just marvellous”.

“Here’s hoping I’ve got another few years left on this planet because I enjoy life at the moment and that’s a marvellous thing to be able to say, and I’d rather it didn’t go away,” he added.
