E! News host Giuliana Rancic is recovering from a double lumpectomy she underwent yesterday. Her husband, Bill, talked on the “Today” show about his wife’s condition, saying that she was “doing well” and added that they will know how the surgery went the following day, after getting the final report from their doctor.
It is a challenging period for TV personalities Giuliana and Bill Rancic. Back in August, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and, since then, their whole life perspective changed. Giuliana has faced her fears recently and opened up about her condition on Monday. She revealed she had breast cancer to Ann Curry from the “Today” Show, on Monday. She added that the doctors caught the disease at an early stage and that it was completely treatable.
Later that day, the couple gave an exclusive interview to E! Entertainment. They revealed that Giuliana was scheduled for an intervention later this week and then she will have chemotherapy for a month and a half. Bill has been very supportive of his wife and, as she said, he always cared about keeping mood up, by making her laugh as often as possible.
Now, after the surgery, a double lumpectomy, while Giuliana is still recovering, Bill spoke on the “Today” about his wife’s condition post-surgery. “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out. She’s doing well at home and recovering”, he said. He added that the following day, they will have to pay a visit to the doctors’ in order to find out the results of the lumpectomy. “They had to remove a couple of lymph nodes and we’re hoping we get a report tomorrow”, Bill added.
Giuliana found out she had cancer by mistake. After two tries of getting pregnant through in vitro fertilization that failed, her doctor advised her to get tested for breast cancer. He said that a mammogram would be indicated before more fertility treatments, as the hormones injected might raise the risk of developing tumors. Giuliana said that she never expected this, as she has no family history of breast cancer. In her interview to E! News on Monday, she told co-worker and friend Ryan Seacrest that she decided to make her problem public in the hope that she will inspire more people to get tested.
