Hugo Chavez to head home to Venezuela nearly six weeks after cancer surgery in Cuba: brother

The Venezuelan president is nearing the end of the 'post-operative' phase of his cancer treatment and will return home in the 'coming days.' Chavez has been battling an aggressive form of pelvic cancer since June 2011.

CARACAS, Venezuela One of Hugo Chavez's brothers said Monday that the Venezuelan president is expected to return home from Cuba in the coming days as he continues to recover nearly six weeks after undergoing cancer surgery.

Argenis Chavez, one of the president's five brothers and the president of the National Electric Corporation, told The Associated Press that the president continues to recover.

He said after an event at the Supreme Court that the decision about when Chavez returns is up to his medical team, but that he is expected to return to Venezuela in the "coming days."

The president hasn't been seen or spoken publicly since he left for Cuba on Dec. 10 for his fourth cancer-related operation.

Argenis Chavez said he recently saw and talked with his brother in Havana, though he didn't specify when or say how the president looked. He said that Chavez remained in Cuba accompanied by his children.
