Zsa Zsa Padilla, who underwent surgery on August 27 at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California to remove the tumor in her kidney, had a successful operation. This was confirmed by her daughter with the late Comedy King Dolphy, Zia Quizon, who recently posted a message on her Twitter account relaying the good news.
“Surgery was a success! As far as the doctors could tell it has not spread anywhere else. Thank you everyone for your prayers and support,” the tweet read.
Later on, Zsa Zsa also took to Twitter to relay more good news.
“My doctors woke me up from my nap to say that pathology got back to them and the tumor taken out was benign! I am overjoyed with the news!” she had posted.
The Divine Diva recently revealed that she had stage 1 kidney cancer due to a golf-ball sized growth in the organ. The whole Quizon clan has been supporting Zsa Zsa throughout her ordeal, and they believe that she will make a full recovery.
“I know Zsa Zsa will overcome this,” Eric Quizon was quoted as saying in another Pep.ph article. “Kung nakaya niya ang nangyari kay Dad for such a long time, walang reason para hindi niya kayanin ito ngayon. Umaasa kaming lahat that Zsa Zsa will pull through from this condition, and makakasama na ulit namin siya as she recovers (If she was able to endure what happened to Dad for such a long time, there is no reason for her not to be able to overcome this. We’re all hoping that Zsa Zsa will pull through from this condition, and we look forward to be with her again as she recovers.).”
