"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan has provided an update on his condition.
On October 28, the WWE Hall of Famer announced that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and would be undergoing surgery later that week. He said that he had been living with it for a couple of months. This came just one week after it was learned that Duggan underwent emergency surgery on October 20.
In a new post to his Twitter account, "Hacksaw" said he is home and feeling much better. He thanked everyone for their thoughts and prayers and hopes to be back travelling the world next year. Here are his full remarks:
"Hi, everybody. I'd just like to give everybody a quick update after my back-to-back surgeries. Obviously, I'm home, doing well, feel much, much better. I also want to say thank you to everyone for the thoughts, the prayers, the good wishes. You know, folks, it's humbling to have so many people all over the world care. I tell you, it means a lot. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you so much to so many folks for checking in on me.
Also, I'd like to say I'm sorry and I hope you understand that I'm going to have to cancel the rest of the shows for this year, but we're looking forward to travelling the world next year, God willing. So, hopefully, we'll see you down the road. Again, thank you very much for all the good wishes and prayers. God bless and hopefully see you soon."

Duggan has been in and out of the hospital over the years. In September 2019, he underwent two operations in the span of 24 hours for a "serious infection." In 2018, Duggan had a health scare over Thanksgiving, revealing his heart went into Atrial Fibrillation and underwent a heart procedure in March 2019.
Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011, one of Duggan's crowning achievements with the promotion came when he won the inaugural Royal Rumble match.
On behalf of Fightful, we'd like to wish 'Hacksaw' the best as he continues his recovery.
