Kathy Griffin is looking for answers. In a scary health update after undergoing surgery to remove half her lung following her cancer diagnosis, the comedian revealed something is wrong with her and she doesn't know where to go from here.

Taking to Instagram Thursday, August 25, Griffin shared her Twitter post that read: "Ok, #CancerTwitter. Last night, an hour after dinner, I vomited about a dozen times over the next 3 hours. This did not happen prior to my half lung being removed last August."

"Why would I be having these problems for having 1/2 of my left lung removed? I had a clean endoscopy," she wrote adding a worried face emoji. Griffin captioned her post: "Is there a cancer IG? Ugh."

Others also suggested that she talk to a doctor, as many asked her why she doesn't have a medical team handling this obvious issue.

One hour after Griffin posted her initial Tweet about her health update, she followed up with more information on the matter. "Sorry, let me clarify. I've been having these vomiting issues since my surgery last August, and I did not have them prior to my surgery last August."

"The last time I was in a hospital was June 2020 when I tried to take my own life and overdosed on prescription pills," Griffin admitted. "With over a year clean and drug free, I now know that I can do this and anything I want without those devil pills."

The Emmy Award winner concluded the statement by saying she feared, "drugs and addiction more than I fear cancer. So, I think I'll be ok."
