Stephen King was in a Maine hospital's intensive care unit early Tuesday after emerging from seven hours of surgery.

Doctors estimated the 51-year-old master of horror would remain in the hospital for two to three more weeks and need at least nine months of physical therapy to fully recover from his injuries.
