Zsa-Zsa battles cancer-A A +A
Monday, August 20, 2012
FORTY days after the death of her life partner, Comedy King Dolphy, Zsa Zsa Padilla has been diagnosed with stage 1 kidney cancer.
The Divine Diva flew to Los Angeles last week with daughter, Zia, to seek doctor's opinion regarding her kidney problem.
Zsa Zsa confirmed in a television interview that she went to Cedars-Sinai hospital in California and the doctors found out she has stage 1 kidney cancer.
"When I heard the word malignant, sabi ko 'I have cancer'. Almost 3 cm (centimeter) yung growth and he [doctor] advised for it to be taken out," she said.
Zsa Zsa said this is a new test for her and her family after what they went through during Dolphy's hospitalization.
The singer said that until now, she's always looking for Dolphy and wishes to see him again.
"I'm still in this stage of denial. Na-hospital siya, na-ICU siya, na-witness ko lahat... namatay siya at hindi na siya babalik. But there's still part of me that feels 'I'll see you again'," she said.
With her latest medical condition, Zsa Zsa is keen to undergo medical operation, which is expected to take place in the States on August 27.
Zsa Zsa said she already made a bucket list of what she wants to do. Her first priority is to completely rule out cancer.
She hopes to be cancer-free forever and promised that she will take care of herself after the ordeal. (Sunnex)
