Many of Kylie fans may feel glad after hearing their idol has been recuperating form a successful breast cancer surgery
Australians may now feel glad, as their pop diva Kylie Minogue was recuperating on Sunday after a successful breast cancer surgery at Cabrini hospital in Melbourne. Local media reported that Kylie has left the hospital on Saturday, and fans are hoping her speedy recovery.
Following the surgery, Kylie would probably undergo a course of radiotherapy, just like any other breast surgery patients would normally do. "What extra treatments are required will depend on the size of the tumor and the grade of the tumor, as in how aggressive it is, and of course whether or not there is any spread to the lymph nodes," Dr Cindy Pam, a medical commentator on Australia's Network Seven explained.
In related news, many of Kylie fans have attended an exhibition of more than 300 of Minogue's touring costumes at the National Portrait Gallery, including a pair of hot pants worn in one raunchy music video. "Because the concerts were postponed, a lot of people have probably come to feel close to her by being able to relive her old concerts by seeing them on the exhibition's cinema screen, and through the costumes," said gallery spokeswoman Suzie Campbell.
