Livenews.com.au brings us some good news written by Alan Jones’ fill-in presenter Jason Morrison:
The prostate cancer operation for broadcaster Alan Jones has been a success, according to his family.
A statement released by his niece Tonia Taylor says;
“Alan’s operation has been successful. His surgeon, Professor Phillip Stricker, is happy with the way it went.
“Alan is comfortable and resting.”
Mr Jones remains in Sydney’s St Vincents hospital.
He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in May and decided to go public with his medical condition to encourage men to take the threat seriously and have regular checks.
He will be away from his 2GB radio show for several weeks to recover from the surgery.
Mr. Jones went under the knife on Saturday according to 2GB rugby league commentator Andrew Moore and I’m pleased to hear that the operation went well. I would imagine that he will be housebound for a few weeks while he recovers, so I wonder if his doctors and the management of 2GB will entertain the idea of having him broadcast from home towards the end of his recovery period if he requests it.
