Meanwhile, Fawcett's physician, who regularly consults with her doctors in Germany (where she sought treatment), says the actress recently had a small procedure in Germany and left for the airport soon after because she was anxious to come home.

In a statement, the physician says: "She (Farrah) took a nine-hour flight right after that procedure. It turned out that the procedure caused a small amount of bleeding in one of the muscles of her abdomen, making a hematoma, which was quite painful....   And that pain, which was coming from the hematoma, had nothing directly to do with the cancer."
