According to Charlie Gasparino it's business as usual for the private equity chief.

People close to Forstmann confirm to the FOX Business Network that Forstmann is undergoing treatment for brain cancer. These people confirm that Forstmann recently underwent brain surgery to remove a malignant tumor, though he is recovering, and according to people close to him, he has returned to work managing his private equity firm, Forstmann Little & Co.

Through a spokeswoman, Forstmann, 71, declined to comment. But friends who have seen him in recent days say Forstmann is optimistic about his chances for recovery, and he has been seen out and about at his favorite Manhattan restaurants.
