Michael Douglas' gruelling eight weeks of treatment for throat cancer has ended. The actor is now determined to go back to a normal life. Doctors have told the actor they are pleased with his progress and no further treatment is scheduled.



"After coming off that much radiation and chemotherapy he has to go through six to eight weeks' recuperation. Then hopefully this will all be behind him and he can live his life cancer free," the

Daily Express

quoted a doctor as saying.



Now Douglas is keen on cooling the media reports that suggested his family was preparing for the worst after he lost weight during the treatment. The friend said such weight loss was normal for someone undergoing intensive treatment.
