E! News Giuliana Rancic Out Of Surgery Recovering From Double Lumpectomy

20 Oct Giuliana-Rancic-ENews-100222

E! News host Giuliana Rancic is recovering after undergoing a double lumpectomy, CNN/People reports. Giulana’s husband, Bill, talked about her surgery on The Today Show: “Giuliana is a trooper. She pulled through it,” he said. “She’s relieved to have it over with and get the cancer out. She’s doing well at home and recovering — and I’m adding nurse to my resume. She’s having fun with that.”

Giuliana, 37, had cancerous growths in both breasts removed, as well as lymph nodes. Giuliana announced her breast cancer diagnosis on The Today Show earlier this week, explaining that she found the cancer after attempting in-vitro fertilization for the third time and getting a mammogram, as instructed by a doctor. Though Giuliana was upset about the failed IVF and her miscarriage, she says her future child “will have saved my life.” If she had gotten pregnant before discovering the cancer, she could have been in more serious health trouble.

“Giuliana has had a tough year and a half,” Bill said. “Between the IVF attempts and now with this, I wish I could carry some of the load,” he said. “Watching her being wheeled into the [operating room] was heartbreaking for me.”

According to BreastCancer.org, a lumpectomy is surgery in which only the tumor and some surrounding tissue is removed (unlike a mastectomy). For more info, click here.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Giuliana!
