Jim Kelly Doing Well After Cancer Surgery

Cancer has not spread, full recovery expected
The first step in Jim Kelly's fight against cancer was a positive one.

Surgery to remove Kelly's upper jaw went well Friday and doctors expect a speedy and successful recovery.

Kelly is still in the hospital and will remain there until he's comfortable enough to return home.

Tests have revealed the cancer has not spread. However, it is yet to be determined if Kelly will need chemotherapy.

The specific name of the cancer is squamous cell carcinoma. Doctors removed the part of the jawbone where the cancer was found and then re-constructed the affected area.

Kelly said he plans to attack his recovery head-on as "Kelly's always do."
