Robertson doing well after surgery on prostate • Tuesday February 18, 2003

The Virginian-Pilot, Feb. 18, 2003
By STEVEN G. VEGH, The Virginian-Pilot

Evangelist Pat Robertson was in “extremely good spirits” after having his cancerous prostate gland removed at an unidentified hospital Monday, a spokeswoman said.

Robertson, who founded and leads the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, was expected to recover fully, said Angell Watts of CBN.

Robertson’s physician, who also was not identified, confirmed during the operation that the disease had not spread.

“The surgeons were very pleased with the success of the procedure. We thank God for answering prayer and continue to pray for Pat’s full recovery,” said Michael Little, president of CBN.

Robertson is expected to return to work in a few weeks to resume his duties as host of “The 700 Club” and chancellor of Regent University.

Gordon McAlister, Regent’s chaplain, described the mood of faculty and students before Monday’s surgery as “calm, concerned and confident.”

Cancer of the prostate, a walnut-shaped gland beneath the bladder, is the most common type of malignancy in American men, affecting 189,000 a year.

Robertson, who turns 73 next month, has presented his regimen of exercise and nutrition as a model of how to resist health problems that often accompany advancing age.

Robertson also believes in divine miracles such as healing, and often prays on his television show for immediate healing for a specific person.

“God has given us authority over disease, demons, sickness, storms and finances,” he said in his book, “Answers to 200 of Life’s Most Probing Questions.” “I believe God heals through prayer, through rest and nutrition, through medicine and through doctors.”
