Last updated : 28 July 2009 By Plymouth_hammer

Hartson was diagnosed with cancer earlier this month and has since been in a critical condition Swansea’s Morriston Hospital.

“John Hartson remains under the care of our critical care team and neurosurgeons at Morriston Hospital,” said Dr Peter Matthews of ABM University NHS Trust.

“Following previous emergency surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, a pre-planned neurosurgical drainage procedure was performed at the weekend from which he has made an excellent recovery.

“We hope that he will be in a position to advance his cancer treatment (chemotherapy) as soon as possible.”
