Kathy Griffin says lung surgery ‘went well’ days after revealing cancer diagnosis
Comedian revealed in interview that she has struggled with drug addiction and suicidal thoughts in recent years

Kathy Griffin has updated fans on her health after revealing that she has been diagnosed with lung cancer.

Le lundi (2 août), the comedian announced on Twitter that she was about to undergo surgery to have half of her left lung removed, but that doctors were “optimistic” it would be a success.

Plus tard ce jour-là, she took part in an interview with ABC’s Nightline, during which she opened up about struggling with prescription drug addiction and attempting suicide in the wake of the backlash to her tweeting a picture holding a model of Donald Trump’s decapitated head.

Writing on Twitter on Tuesday (3 août), Griffin thanked fans for their support regarding both her illness and discussion about addiction.

“Wow! I’m so grateful for all the love you guys are sending me. My cancer surgery went well yesterday. Phew," elle a écrit.

“I was very nervous about opening up on @Nightline re my suicidal ideations and my prescription pill addiction,” Griffin continued, sharing a picture of a keyring reading: “To thine own self be true. Unity, service, recovery.”

“This keychain means the world to me," elle a écrit. “One day at a time.”

In her original post, Griffin shared her surprise to have been diagnosed with lung cancer “even though I’ve never smoked”.

She said that she “should be up and running around as usual in a month or less”, assuring her fans she is “gonna be just fine”.
