Los Angeles, March 4: Singer Celine Dion’s husband René Angélil, who underwent surgery to remove a tumour from his throat a few months back, is on the road to recovery.

“Rene Angelil’s office confirmed that he has been recovering at home in Las Vegas following surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his throat on Dec 23, 2013″ eonline.com quoted Dion’s representative as saying.

“The procedure was successful and Mr. Angelil was released from hospital a few days following the surgery,” added the representative.

Dion wants him to be fit and fine at the earliest.

In a statement, she said: “I don’t want René to stress out with work-related issues. I want him to focus on getting back to 100 percent. I’ve been doing my shows at the Colosseum and everything’s under control.

“At home, we’ve been spending a lot of quality time with the family. We feel very fortunate that we’ve been able to get the best care possible and we thank god every day for helping us to get through this ordeal.”

This is the second time Angélil, a music manager, is being treated. Back in 2001, he battled throat cancer.
