Bret “The Hitman” Hart has been making people tap out for 20 years. Now it looks like the “Excellence of Execution” is about to make prostate cancer tap out as well. Last week, Hart had successful surgery to remove his prostate. The surgery appears to be a complete success and went even better than expected, and it looks like he’ll be able to skip chemotherapy.
“Bret Hart underwent prostate cancer surgery on 2/10 in Calgary and by all accounts, the procedure was a success,” reports the Observer. “He had his prostate completely removed and doctors were confident that the cancer was contained and so he won’t need any chemotherapy or radiation and should make a full recovery.
“Hart had apparently known about having prostate cancer dating back to last summer, but had only told close family, and even friends only found out days before he made the announcement on Facebook. Doctors felt that because it was a slow growing cancer, he didn’t need immediate surgery and they pushed it back due to his recovery from a wrist operation that took longer than expected to rehab.”
We were all hoping that “The Hitman” would put prostate cancer in the Sharpshooter, and it looks like with the help of his doctors, he’s going to make them call for the bell. Keep fighting, Hitman.
