|Description||After doctors found that his cancer has spread, Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff now plans to go through chemotherapy during the next six months. |
“They found some cancer cells in three of the 20 lymph nodes that they checked” after Shurtleff had surgery last week to remove eight inches of his colon because of cancer there, said Paul Murphy, spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office.
“So he will go through 12 rounds of chemotherapy beginning in January that will last about six months,” he said. Murphy said he is unsure how much time Shurtleff may need to take off because of the treatments.
Murphy said, “The good news is they discovered the cancer early, and that gives him a much better chance.”
Two weeks ago, Shurtleff went in for an appendectomy — and doctors discovered the cancer. Until then, he had never experienced serious health issues other than trouble with his leg after a serious motorcycle accident.
