HeadLine: RONNIE’S ON MEND AFTER PROSTATE OP

COMEDY star Ronnie Corbett is recovering from prostate surgery.
Ronnie, who does not have cancer, had an operation last weekend and
doctors say early signs are it was a success.
Wife Anne said: “He’s in good spirits and doing exceptionally well. He
won’t be on the golf course for a wee while yet, but he’s itching to
pick up his clubs again.”
Ronnie, 73, of Addington, Surrey, has benign prostatic hyperplasia, a
non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. His father had a similar
problem.
Drugs controlled it for four years before surgery was needed. Ronnie
had the operation at King’s College Hospital in London and was back
home on Wednesday.
Anne said: “He’s sitting here with his feet up. He was a very good boy
and did everything he was told. His surgeon took super care of him.
“With an operation like this it can take weeks and weeks to recover,
but I don’t see a prolonged recuperation in Ron’s case. I shouldn’t be
surprised if he’s fairly chirpy in three of four days.”
He still plans to make a TV sitcom, she added.
