E! host Giuliana Rancic spoke with Matt Lauer Friday morning on the Today Show, a little over two weeks after undergoing a double mastectomy, sharing with him that recovery has been less than pleasant.
“I knew this was going to be a tough surgery but I in no way want to minimize it. Yes, I’m two-and-a-half weeks out, but up until a week-and-a-half ago it was hell. It was horrible,” she admitted to Lauer.
And Giuliana quickly learned that pain medicine wasn’t going to help her. “I went into surgery at 4 p.m. and got out around 9:30 p.m. and by 4 a.m., I had to get off the morphine because I was so sick and I thought to myself, ‘[if I threw up] you have to engage all of your chest muscles and I just had my chest operated on.’”
Giuliana says she’s relying a lot on her husband, Bill Rancic, to help her with daily routines, but is looking forward to recovering in 2012.
Get well soon!
