Legendary Northwest radio personality Pat O’Day came through surgery successfully this afternoon for removal of a meningioma, a benign tumor that was pressing against his brain, says his wife, Stephanie Johnson O’Day.

“The doctor (Dr. Gregory Foltz, director of the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute) came up, had a big smile on his face, and said, ‘We got it all. It’ll never come back.’ ”

The wife says that Foltz explained the tumor had been growing slowly for 30 to 40 years, starting out the size of a pea and eventually ending up the size of an egg that then began causing the various symptoms exhibited by O’Day.

Pat O’Day, 77,  will be recuperating at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle for three to five days, says his wife.
