Tuesday evening, seven-time world champion and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart took to Instagram to let his fans know that his surgery for prostate cancer was a success:
Surgery's over and on the long road to recovery. I want to thank Dr. Hyndman and the nursing staff at Rocky View Hospital for an outstanding job. I also want to thank my family, friends, and fans for all your love and support. Things are looking up and I should be home in the next couple of days. In the words of Vince McMahon: "It's onwards and upwards.

Hart, who has worked hard in recent years to raise awareness of men’s health issues, took to Facebook last Tuesday to announce that he had been diagnosed with the disease and would need surgery, but was determined to fight bravely.
