MODENA, Italy (AP) - Tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who has pancreatic cancer, was released from the hospital Saturday, two weeks after he was admitted with a high fever, the hospital said.
In a statement, the Modena hospital said the 71-year-old Pavarotti left his room at 6 a.m. for home, where it said he could continue his recovery while staying in close contact with his doctors.
Pavarotti was admitted to the hospital on Aug. 8 because of a high fever.
The opera star had surgery for the cancer in July 2006 in a New York hospital.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of the disease, though doctors said the surgery offered improved hopes for survival.
