UNC's Williams released from hospital

Posted September 20, 2012

— University of North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams was released from the hospital Thursday, just one day after undergoing surgery to remove a tumor from his right kidney.

Williams underwent a three and a half hour robotic partial nephrectomy Wednesday morning to remove the tumor that was revealed during a routine checkup earlier this month. A person close to the situation said that Williams will continue his recovery at his home.

There is a possibility that Williams, 62, may have to have a second procedure on his left kidney in October. UNC vs Duke Our Lens On Roy Williams

It is still unknown if the tumor removed Wednesday is cancerous.

“The surgery went well and according to plan,” said Dr. Eric Wallen, Director of Laparoscopic Surgery, professor of urology and robotic surgery specialist at UNC who oversaw the procedure. “I fully expect him to coach this season and for years to come.”

Williams is expected to be with the team for their first practice on Oct. 13. UNC is scheduled to begin its season with "Late Night with Roy" on Oct. 12. The Tar Heels are slated to play an exhibition against Shaw on Oct. 26 before opening up the regular season on Nov. 9 against Gardner-Webb.

    Look moron, take your garbage to another thread. No one here really cares in what you believe in or don't believe in.

    Did I say I prayed to either? No sir or ma'am - I did not. But even if I did, I refuse to insult you with childish words. I don't stoop to your level. I hope you have a fabulous day!

    Go heels! Get well soon Roy!

    Sweet! So good to see you here. Hope you're doing well.

    I'm glad Roy is home, but I'm worried that he needs another surgery at the very least. At least he's getting the best medical care in the country, right down the road from where he coaches. My prayers go out to Coach as well as his family and his UNC family.

    Hey jgunn and others. My prayers are with Coach. Home is a much better place to recover.

    Glad Roy is home, where he can be more comfortable than in a hospital. Get well soon, Roy.

    Why? Because praying to "god" makes about as much sense as praying to the Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy?

    You should be ashamed for not using your brain.

    Thanks to all the classy fans, even KMOR. I could, might, be wrong about him.
