Kathy Griffin has recently had surgery for lung cancer. Before going in for the extensive procedure, the comedian said that doctors have expressed a fair sense of hope for a full recovery. Griffin even said that there might not be a need for chemotherapy, given all goes well.
In a tweet, Griffin said that the doctors will have to remove half of her left lung. Starring in “My Life on the D-List,” Kathy Griffin became popular for her natural wit and unmatched talent. Despite never smoking a cigarette in her life, the comedian has developed lung cancer.
However, Griffin has affirmed that the cancer is still at stage one and chances of recovery are phenomenal.
“The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung. Hopefully no chemo or radiation after this and I should have normal function with my breathing,”
wrote a confident Kathy Griffin on Twitter.
Post-surgery, a representative confirmed that the operation had gone well and right according to plan. The procedure was carried out successfully and there were no apparent complications that arose during the surgery.
The 60-year-old comedian is out of surgery and currently resting, said the representative. While preparing for surgery, Griffin made a reference to her incessant career struggles since 2017. Four years ago, Griffin had taken to Twitter to post a snap of a bloodied head, one that looked much like Donald Trump, the U.S president at that time.
Griffin’s posting had led to a loss of her role as an anchor in the coverage of CNN’s New Year’s Eve, alongside Anderson Cooper. Apart from her long-running gig, she also faced innumerable difficulties in getting a new role post the Twitter fiasco.
In retrospect, those were a” helluva 4 years,” remarked Griffin. Right after Griffin announced the news of her surgery, wishes for her well-being came flying through. One of the well-wishers included actor Mia Farrow, who said she’d remember her in prayers.
