With her pain subsiding, Farrah Fawcett left the hospital Thursday with longtime companion Ryan O'Neal after being treated for internal bleeding not directly related to her cancer.

"She's walking and in great in spirits and looking forward to celebrating Easter at home," her treating physician, Dr. Lawrence Piro, tells PEOPLE. "Her home has been stocked with her favorite teas and food and she's looking forward to enjoying them."

Fawcett, 62, had been hospitalized in Los Angeles since April 2 in the latest setback while enduring a long battle with anal cancer, first diagnosed in 2006. She was being treated for a hematoma from bleeding in a stomach muscle stemming from a "small procedure" at a clinic in Germany, Piro has said.

"Farrah was discharged [Thursday] afternoon from the hospital and is at home. She was accompanied by Ryan," said Piro. "The pain from the hematoma has improved tremendously."
