Giuliana Rancic underwent a successful double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery last night for her breast cancer, according to E! Online.
Husband Bill Rancic told the site, "G is doing really well ... Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result. She had a little bit of pain through the night but is feeling much better this morning and was cracking jokes." Giuliana added, "I want to thank all the viewers and fans for their support and prayers. The tweets and notes have not gone unnoticed. I am very grateful."
The E! News host was diagnosed with breast cancer three months ago, and she recently told The Today Show's Ann Curry that after some careful consideration, the radical procedure was the only option for her. "For me, it was important to get the cancer out," she said. "That's what I wanted to do, just get it out ... At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life."
Get well soon G!
