In a statement issued to the press, Andrew Cuomo said:
"Around 8 a.m. this morning, Sandy underwent surgery that concluded just before 1 p.m. I am happy to report that she is doing as well as could be expected and has begun the post-surgery recovery process. On behalf of Sandy and myself, I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers over the last few days. Your support has meant the world to us."
Lee was doing so well, in fact, that she posed for a selfie with Cuomo right after she woke up from surgery:

Lee has also been updating her Facebook page regularly regarding the procedure. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Maybe it's just me, but: Am I the only one who finds the selfie tacky? I realize she's in the spotlight and trying to bring awareness to the subject, but if I were in her position, that's where I would draw the line.
