Jack Kevorkian Address

Assisted-suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian was back in his cell at Michigan's Thumb Correctional facility Monday after undergoing double hernia surgery.

Kevorkian, nicknamed "Dr. Death" for assisting in the suicides of more than 100 terminally ill patients, had bilateral hernia surgery Friday and had been expected to recuperate at Foote Hospital in Jackson, Mich. He was transferred to the hospital under 24-hour guard last Thursday.

Kevorkian, 76, who is in poor health reportedly with hepatitis C and circulatory problems, Sunday was returned to his prison cell at the Thumb Correctional Center where he is serving a 10-to-25-year sentence, the Detroit Free Press said.

Kevorkian was convicted of second-degree murder in the videotaped poisoning of a man suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease in 1998.
