Two years after revealing she had undergone a single mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Shannen Doherty has gone back to the operating room to have breast reconstruction surgery.


The 47-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 star spent Mother’s Day recovering from the surgery, but she took some time to share a message on social media to celebrate her mother and thank her for her permanent support.

Shannen uploaded a photo of herself and her mother, Rosa Doherty, in a hospital room. In the picture, Rosa leans over to hug her daughter, still recovering from the procedure, as reported by People.

‘Happy Mother’s Day mom. I only bring you to the best places… hospital food…yum. I love you. Thank you for always being there. I’d write more but pain pills are kicking in. @themamarosa #reconstruction,’ she captioned the photo.

Back in August 2015, the Charmed actress gave the exclusive to People that she was struggling with breast cancer. ‘Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment.’


‘I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends, and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me,’ she added at the time.

After having the mastectomy, she opened up with Entertainment Tonight about how heartbreaking it was for her to have to be getting sized for new brass due to the procedure.

‘It was traumatic and horrible, and I didn’t think anything of it at the time, then my mom went with me and I broke down crying in the dressing room and ran out. And then sat in the car crying,’ she told the celebrity news outlet.

Nowadays, things seem to be getting back into place for the star, who has been in remission for a year. Although it is too early for her to consider she is finally cancer-free, she is staying positive and confident that she is, in fact, a ‘cancer slayer.’
