Ed Shouse is back to work

Knox County taxman Trustee Ed Shouse is back to work, doing partial days, after surgery to remove his prostate a couple weeks ago.

“I’ve half a day today. And half, or two-thirds tomorrow,” Shouse said Tuesday. “It feels great to have everything behind me. I’m happy to move on with life.”

As one might guess, the prostate removal was from cancer discovered by his doctor.

But he’s in good health now.

“The prostate was completely removed and it was totally clean bill of health,” Shouse said. “My urologist said there was no problem around the margins, and everything was totally contained. About 5 percent of the prostate had cancer. It was very successful.”
