The 60-year-old actress and comedian added that the doctors are very "optimistic" and that hopefully, after the surgery, she won't need chemo or radiation and "should have normal function" with her breathing. "I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It's been a helluva 4 years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh and entertaining you, but I'm gonna be just fine," the comedian added. 

About Covid, she added that she's "fully vaccinated" and called out her fans to get vaccinated, as the "consequences for being unvaccinated would have been even more serious." "Please stay up to date on your medical check ups. It'll save your life," Kathy concluded.
