Michael Douglas: Radiation, Chemo 'Really Knocks You Out'

Wednesday September 01, 2010 08:00 AM EDT

Michael Douglas knows he has a tough road ahead – but he’s ready to face it.

“It’s a fight,” says the 65-year-old Oscar winner, who is undergoing a grueling course of radiation and chemotherapy to treat a tumor at the base of his tongue, and adds of his treatment: “It really knocks you out.”

Douglas reveals in this week’s PEOPLE cover story that he received the diagnosis of throat cancer in early August after suffering persistent throat and ear pain.

Douglas’s wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, 40, says she has struggled with seeing her normally tireless husband slowed by the effects of his treatment.

“The hardest part is seeing his fatigue, because Michael is never tired,” Zeta-Jones tells PEOPLE. She says Douglas told their children Dylan, 10, and Carys, 7, the difficult news himself: “Daddy sat them down and told them he has cancer now.”

The diagnosis capped what Douglas, who is next starring in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, calls “a pretty intense year” that also saw his oldest son Cameron, 31, sentenced to five years in prison on drug charges.

But, says Zeta-Jones, “if there’s anything Michael has, it’s strength.”

9 + 25 +2+0+0+9 = 45 = his personal year (from September 25th, 2009 to September 24th, 2010) = Suffering in silence.  Feel sorry for.  That hurts.  Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  Uh oh.  I have a bad feeling about this.  Spider sense is tingling.  Heart sinks.  Deep sinking feeling.  Things go horribly wrong.  expectations > reality = disappointment
