Giuliana Rancic Recovering From Surgery

by at . Comments

Giuliana Rancic's road to recovery has begun.

The E! News personality announced Monday that she has breast cancer, and two days later had a double lumpectomy to remove it, hopefully for good.

Thankfully, husband Bill told the Today Show Thursday that Giuliana is "doing well" post-surgery. That said, "It was kind of a long day," Bill explained.

Get Well Giuliana

"There's many steps in the process if you go through this. Since it was on both breasts, the morning started with a two hour MRI where they had to put a guide wire in so the surgeon knew exactly what area to remove."

After a mammogram of the other breast and repeating the process, "we went into the surgery [which] lasted about two hours," Bill said. "She's a trooper."

"She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out. At this point she's doing well at home and recovering."

"I wish I could take some of the pain away," he said. "Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me ... I'm just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she's comfortable."

Thankfully, the prognosis is good for 37-year-old Giuliana. "We're viewing this as a gift," Bill said. "It was caught accidentally, very, very early."

Giuliana's doctor insisted she get a mammogram before going through her third round of IVF treatments, and that was when it was discovered.

"I will be okay, because I found it early," she reassured fans Monday on Today. Following her surgery, she has "radiation for six and a half weeks."

And the spouses of four years are determined to continue in their attempts to conceive once Giuliana's medical issues are resolved.

"I'm not gonna give up," she said. When she does get pregnant, "That baby will have saved my life," she mused. "There's some master plan."

Keep up hope and stay strong, G!

Glad that she will be okay. She is really flat though, so Bill won't be loosing much...if she was a Beautiful Black woman, no one would even care. This America is not our America. Unite.

with so much personality. I hope that she, not only makes a full recovery, but is finally able to get pregnant with that baby that she so desperately wants. Although I don't know her personally, and probably never will, I feel as though I do know her by watching her personal struggles. She is a strong woman, and she is in my thoughts.

Quite honestly, I never was a fan of Giuliana Rancic until I started watching Giuliana & Bill. They are an adorable couple who are very clearly in love with each other. I admire that they have chosen to shine a light on infertility, something that effects millions. They publicly handled their miscarriage with grace and class. I was sad to hear of Giuliana's diagnosis with breast cancer. She is a beautiful young woman
