Just weeks after undergoing a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, E! News host Giuliana Rancic visited the Today show Friday with husband Bill.

So how is the cancer survivor feeling now?

"I feel great," Giuliana told Matt Lauer. "I feel great considering it's been only two and a half weeks, but I still have a ways to go as far as recovery."

The Giuliana & Bill star, who returned to work this week, has maintained a positive, but candid attitude about her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Make no mistake, this was no easy decision - or ordeal.

"It was definitely hard," she said regarding how she felt immediately after her invasive surgery. "Up until about a week and a half ago it was hell."

Giuliana was on morphine, in extreme pain and sick to her stomach, but with Bill's help, she managed to get out of bed - and set a hospital record!

Giuliana's doctor gave Bill strict orders to help her walk around the bed and the hospital to aid in her recovery, which provided her motivation.

"I asked a nurse what the record was for walking laps around the hospital," recalled said. "It was two," Bill went on. "G did two and a half."
