Los Angeles, March 16 IANS | 6 months ago

Actress Angelina Jolie, who had a double mastectomy in May last year, says "there's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet".


The 38-year-old had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery after being told she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer because she carries the BRCA1 gene.

"There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet. I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who I've been talking to, to get through that next stage," she told Entertainment Weekly.

She said that she was "very fortunate" to have great doctors and "good recovery" and "a project like 'Unbroken' to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work".

"I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people," she added.

The mother of six, who lost her mother to ovarian cancer and her aunt to breast cancer, had shared her experience in a New York Times op-ed article titled "My Medical Choice."
