Michael Douglas Beat Throat Cancer

Posted: January 10th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Douglas Beat Throat CancerSubmit Comment
Michael Douglas recently appeared on the "Today" show to do an interview with Matt Lauer. The show will air on Tuesday, and part of the discussion was regarding Douglas' battle with stage-four throat cancer that resulted in eight weeks of chemotherapy.

"I feel good, relieved. The tumor is gone," revealed the actor. "But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain. I guess there's not a total euphoria. I'll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it's been a wild six-month ride."

Douglas says he is still dealing with some of the long-term side effects of the disease. "[My] salivary ducts have been closed down as a result of the radiation, probably for at least a year or two," he explained. "So your mouth is very dry - particularly affects you at night - for sleeping. Still have the cheek factor, which will progressively go away. But that's about it."

But his appetite is back. "I'm eating like a pig," Douglas joked. "I lost about 32 pounds. And I've put about 12 back. But, I mean, I got another 20, 25 to go. I can eat anything I want. [Doctors] want to keep the cardio down because they want me to put some more weight on. I lost a lot of muscle mass, so I'm going to work on that."
