Kathy Griffin is finally home after undergoing lung cancer surgery.
“Home from the hospital and greeted by my board certified medical PAWfessional recovery pack,” the 60-year-old author captioned the sweet video.
The Emmy-award winner underwent surgery to remove a mass from her lung on Monday, the same day she revealed she was one year sober following a painkiller addiction that she hid from the world.
"To be honest, this cancer surgery was a little more than I had anticipated," she bravely declared via Instagram on Thursday, August 5. "Tonight will be my first night without my narcotic pain killers. Hello, Tylenol, my new best friend!"
She then made the shocking revelation that she attempted suicide last year. "The last time I was in a hospital was June 2020 when I tried to take my own life and overdosed on prescription pills," the My Life on the D List star continued. "With over a year clean and drug free, I now know that I can do this and anything I want without those devil pills."
Griffin concluded her brutally honest statement by admitting she feared "drugs and addiction more than I fear cancer. So, I think I'll be ok."
The A Hell Of A Story author urged her fans to get regular checkups after her cancer revelation, and pressed that everyone get the COVID-19 vaccine. “It’s been a helluva four years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh and entertaining you,” she wrote on Monday, referring to the Donald Trump severed head photo scandal that derailed her career.
She Continued: “But I’m gonna be just fine. Of course I am fully vaccinated for COVID. The consequences for being unvaccinated would have been ever more serious. Please stay up to date on your medical checkups. It’ll save your life. XXOO.”
