Fawcett’s physician, Lawrence Piro, said the star suffered a hematoma after flying back to the United States following a procedure in Germany. He said recent photos of her in a wheelchair were misleading.
“Actually, it was painful for her to walk, which is why she was in that wheelchair. And that pain, which was coming from the hematoma, had nothing directly to do with the cancer,” Piro told People. “She’s able to walk. And she remains in good spirits with her usual sense of humor. She’s been in great shape her whole life and has an incredible resolve and an incredible resilience.”
Speaking on Fawcett’s behalf, producer Craig Nevius told People that Fawcett wants to address the recent reports in “appreciation for her fans, who have offered their constant support throughout her fight.”
“Tonight, Farrah has hope, and she hopes that others will continue to hold onto theirs,” he said early Monday morning.
Fawcett, 62, is expected to be released in a few days, according to Nevius.
