— Bret Hart underwent prostate cancer surgery on 2/10 in Calgary and by all accounts, the procedure was a success. 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.
