Giuliana Rancic 'doing well' after surgery for breast cancer

October

After E! News host Giuliana Rancic announced on Monday's Today show that she had breast cancer, she revealed she would be having surgery later in the week. Now husband Bill told the show she is recovering from the procedure.

"It was kind of a long day," Bill Rancic said Thursday. "There's many steps in the process when you go through this. Because it was on both breasts, the morning started off with a two-hour MRI where they had to put a guide wire in so the surgeon knew exactly what area to remove." Watch video of his interview above.

Bill said the actual surgery took about two hours, following mammograms and other prep work. Giuliana will now have to undergo six weeks of radiation therapy.

"She's a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out," Bill said. "She's doing well at home and recovering."
