ATLANTA -- Media mogul Ted Turner says he's bouncing back from surgery and is looking forward to getting back to business as usual.

In a statement released Monday, Turner thanked well-wishers for support while he was hospitalized in Argentina late last week for appendicitis.

The 75-year-old billionaire was first treated Friday at the San Carlos Sanatorium in Bariloche, near his ranch in Argentina's Patagonia region.

Turner says he's recovering well and that doctors in Bariloche and Buenos Aires took good care of him.

Turner Enterprises Inc. spokesman Phillip Evans says Turner isn't expecting to make any further comments about his illness and hospitalization.
