North East England newspaper the Sunday Sun has reported that Spire Bushey Hospital patient and Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton is on the mend after having major surgery last week.
Michelle underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery performed by consultant breast surgeon Miss Lee-Min Lai and consultant plastic surgeon Mr Ash Mosahebi respectively. Michelle opted for the surgery after revealing on ITV1's Lorraine in October that she had been diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene mutation, giving her an 80% chance of developing breast cancer and 30-40% percent chance of developing ovarian cancer.
Yesterday, Michelle tweeted: “just been discharged & I wanted 2say a massive thank u to all the staff @SpireBushey 4 making this traumatic time a very friendly stay...now time to recover at home with my family, whom have been nothing short of amazing.”
