Just weeks after undergoing a double mastectomy, Giuliana Rancic is back at work. See her first post-surgery appearance.
In a statement on the cable network’s website Rancic wrote, “It feels great to be back at work.”
“I wasn’t sure whether I was going to return to E! News this week or after the new year. The last thing I wanted to do was rush my recovery.”
“Thankfully, I’ve been feeling better every single day since surgery and this weekend my doctors gave me the green light to get back to work,” she continued. “Even though I moved a tad slower than usual today, everyone welcomed me back with open arms and it was a wonderful homecoming.”
Earlier in the day Rancic tweeted, “Back at work today since surgery. Excited to be on set of @ENews. I’ve missed my 2nd family (co-workers and you guys!!!) #thankful.”
Giuliana Rancic underwent a double mastectomy sometime around Dec. 13 after announcing she was diagnosed with breast cancer in October. She and her husband Bill Rancic, who have based an entire reality show around their infertility heartbreak and quest to get pregnant, have gone through the cancer battle publicly as a means of raising awareness of the disease.
