His friend Alan Burry revealed: "Michael would like to go to the Golden Globes. He is planning on going. Michael can't yet return to work and he can't work out physically, he has been ordered to take it easy and get his energy levels up."
As well as being ordered to rest by doctors, Michael has also been placed on a special diet to help him regain the 30lbs he lost during cancer treatment.
Alan added to RadarOnline.com: "Michael has to eat a lot now to gain back the weight and help him find his strength again. That's one of the hardest things when you have been through the medication and treatment. He needs to gain weight. He looks thin, it's true, but that is because the chemo eats everything in someone's body.”
While Michael is said to be doing well in his battle with the disease, some onlookers were shocked by his frail appearance on a recent trip to Disney World in Florida with his wife actress Catherine Zeta Jones
, 41, and their two children Dylan, 10 and Carys, seven.
One source said: "He looked frail and sick... he most definitely looked like he needed the wheelchair."
