Dodd’s Cancer Surgery A Success

Connecticut Sen. Christopher J. Dodd underwent successful surgery in New York Tuesday to treat his early-stage prostate cancer, his campaign announced.

In an e-mail to supporters, Dodd’s wife, Jackie Clegg Dodd wrote, “I am very happy and relieved to report that the surgery went very well and the doctors predict a full recovery.”

Dodd is expected to spend a couple weeks recovering at his home in Connecticut before returning to Washington, D.C., in September.

Dodd’s cancer was discovered as a part of a routine physical in June; he disclosed his diagnosis publicly on July 31. Wrote Clegg Dodd, “Chris and I want to encourage all of you to make sure that you and your loved ones get annual physicals. His cancer was caught early during a regular checkup.”
