HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd has been released from the hospital after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer.

A statement from his office said the 65-year-old was released Saturday from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Dodd spokesman Bryan DeAngelis said the senator is recovering well and is at home in East Haddam with his family.

The five-term Democrat announced last month he had been diagnosed with an early, treatable stage of cancer. He expects to return to a full Senate schedule later this month.

Dodd has said the cancer will not affect his plans to seek a sixth term next year. He is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and is playing a leading role as Congress seeks to overhaul the nation's health care system.
