Michael Douglas near end of cancer treatment


LOS ANGELES– Douglas, 66, has one more treatment left this week and then “no further treatments are scheduled,” publicist Allen Burry told People magazine. “He’s really happy about it ending,” Burry added.

The star of two “Wall Street” movies announced in August that he had stage 4 throat cancer but that doctors were optimistic about the outcome. Burry said that Douglas will need a six-week recovery period followed by periodic check-ups.
