Michael Douglas Talks Cancer

September 1, 2010 / Posted by:

Isn’t that a headline that just squats over your cup of coffee and pisses in it? But it’s not completely bad news. As some of you know, Michael Douglas was diagnosed with cancer of the froat three weeks ago and he had a conversation with both People Magazine and David Letterman about his current condition. Michael tells People that he has just started 8 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy to treat a tumor that is sitting at the base of his tongue and refuses to leave. Michael has 7 more weeks of treatment to go.

Michael told Letterman last night that the chemo will change his a voice a bit and he might have trouble swallowing solid foods. Michael’s cancer is Stage 4, but it has not taken its evil act past his throat area. When Letterman asked what the chances are that it won’t spread to the rest of his body, Michael answered that after doctors conducted a poll on Facebook they said he has an 80% chance of recovery. No, I don’t know how doctors came up with 80%, but that’s the number they gave to Michael. Other doctors say his chances are even better.

Michael’s interview with Dave ended with a hug. Click here to see a piece of it.

Here’s hoping to a full recovery! Michael should just make sure to keep his eyes closed when CZJ serenades him with a healing song, because that bitch looks crazy in the face when she sings. And this doesn’t mean I have to pay money to see Wall Street 2, right? I’ll sneak into it after buying a ticket for the much more respectable cinema masterpiece You Again.
