Griffin shared the update with fans on Twitter, and alluded to her struggles with drugs and suicide attempt, which she disclosed in an interview with ABC’s “Nightline” Monday night.

“Wow! I’m so grateful for all the love you guys are sending me,” the 60-year-old wrote.

“My cancer surgery went well yesterday. Phew. I was very nervous about opening up on @Nightline re my suicidal ideations and my prescription pill addiction.”

The “My Life on the D-List” star previously wrote that she has stage one lung cancer, despite “never” smoking, and doctors are “very optimistic” that she will recover in “a month or less.”

“Whether I like it or not, I think I’m a resilient survivor,” Griffin told ABC News.

“The irony is not lost on me that, a little over a year ago, all I wanted to do was die. And now, all I wanna do is live,” she said.

We wish Kathy a speedy (and full) recovery!
