John Carter doing well after surgery
National MP John Carter says he is feeling “pretty good” after a successful bowel operation.
Mr Carter was recently diagnosed with an early, isolated case of bowel cancer.
He had surgery, known as a laparoscopic assisted anterior resection, on Monday morning and remains in Wellington’s Wakefield Hospital.
“The medical staff tell me that everything is looking good and the surgery went according to plan,” says Mr Carter
“I am feeling great but will continue to take it easy for a few weeks. This has come as quite a shock but I feel very lucky to have spotted the problem early and dealt with it before it got out of hand.
“I urge all men to have regular health checks and to talk to their doctor at the first sign of any problems.”
