Michael Douglas' Positive Recovery
Michael Douglas has revealed that doctors are positive about his recovery prospects as he undergoes treatment for throat cancer.
Michael Douglas says doctors are optimistic about his recovery.
The Oscar-winning actor - who was diagnosed with throat cancer last month, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy - admitted that he's had a "pretty bad year" but says his doctors are positive about his condition.
He said: "I'm doing fine. My doctors are optimistic, I'm optimistic, and obviously a combination of radiation every day and chemo limits a full day, but everybody did a fantastic job and life goes on. So it's just another chapter. I've had a pretty good run of it and this was a pretty bad year."
Michael - who has two children Dylan, 10 and Carys, seven with wife Catherine Zeta Jones - joked that he picked the best time to be ill because it is college football season in America.
He explained: "I don't have anything to do thank goodness. You couldn't pick a better time. Tennis has never been better. College football just started.. so the sport looks really good."
