Jade Goody Has Successful Cancer Surgery

Media reports indicate that an eight-hour surgery for cervical cancer on reality TV star Jade Goody has been successful.

The 27-year-old star was operated upon at London's Royal Marsden hospital on Sep 12 after she was diagnosed with the disease last month.

She came to know about the disease when she was appearing on India's version of Big Brother, and had to abruptly fly out of Mumbai to return home for treatment.

The mum of two has talked about having her womb removed on Living With Jade Goody, filmed before the surgery.

"It's the equivalent of a heart transplant so it's a very, very serious operation. All my life I've been told I'm a pig and now I'm being cut open like one. It's a dangerous operation," The Sun quoted her, as saying.

Goody's spokesperson Max Clifford said: "The operation went well. She's got the best people looking after her. She's had surgery, a radical hysterectomy and the operation lasted eight hours."

He added: "I spoke to her last night and she was as comfortable as possible and trying to be positive but was obviously feeling very scared as any 27-year-old in that situation would."

Goody will now start with a gruelling nine-week course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
