Chavez says he's recovering quickly from surgery

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Friday he's recovering quickly from tumor surgery in Cuba. He said doctors have put him on a special diet, and he's taking daily walks and spending time with close relatives.


"I cannot neglect my recuperation treatment for even a minute," Chavez said during a brief telephone call to state television. "I continue recovering, thanks to Venezuela's support, the Cuban people, the doctors here in Cuba, to the love from the people that fills me." Chavez flew to Cuba on Feb. 24 to have a growth removed in the same part of the pelvic region where a larger, malignant tumor was extracted last year. (AP)
