'24' shuts down production to allow Kiefer Sutherland to have surgery



20th Century Fox Television has temporarily shut down production of "24" so that star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland can undergo a surgical procedure related to a ruptured cyst near his kidney.

Although the cyst ruptured while he was working earlier in the week, production continued until Friday without him. His publicist, Evelyn Karamanos, issued the following statement on Sunday to the Times:

"While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps. He looks forward to returning to work next week."

Production will probably resume in one week. 20th Century Fox Television also issued a statement on Sunday:

"We are temporarily suspending production of '24' while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure. We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season's episodes."

Here is some more about this surgery. Someone found this on aonther forum we where talking about this samething. http://www.csmc.edu/1398.html


Also here is some of the talk we are have with a medical poison over at the other forum

nto: Is this random thing that can happen to anybody?

Yep. 50% of people over 50 have them! Most cause no symptoms and are just found incidentally on imaging studies being done for other reasons. Asymtomatic cysts are left alone , painful ones can be drained with a guided needle. Problematic cysts can be removed with laproscope or, if in the kidney, scope can be inserted in urethra and guided up into kidney to remove cyst . Article says his was "near kidney" so he probably dodged that particular procedure!

Here is where she is awning one more question

And DH- there are a few research studies linking kidney stones with renal cysts- in one study the odds of having cysts was found to be over 2.5x greater in patients who also had renal stones. Interestingly smoking was also shown to increase odds by about as much . There's not enough research to form consensus but there's definitely a chance that K's past hx of renal stones and now cysts are related.

'24's' Kiefer Sutherland is cleared to return to work

20th Century Fox Television has told Show Tracker that "24" will resume production on March 1, now that its star and executive producer, Kiefer Sutherland, has been cleared by his doctors to return to work.
Sutherland underwent outpatient surgery on Feb. 16 after a cyst near his kidney ruptured a few days earlier.
Sutherland's representatives could not be immediately reached for comment.
But Jack Bauer is OK, America. You were never that worried about him, though, were you?
