Camille Grammer has radical hysterectomy for endometrial cancer
UPI News Service, 10/11/2013
Camille Grammer's publicist says the former "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is recovering from surgery to treat early stage endometrial cancer.
"She underwent a radical hysterectomy today," Grammer's representative Howard Bragman told People.com Friday.
"The surgery went well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period."
Bragman said Grammer was at an elevated risk for cancer due to genetic issues.
"[She] has been diligent about regular checkups and monitoring, which explains the early detection and rapid treatment," the publicist said.
"Ms. Grammer expresses gratitude to all the amazing health care professionals who have taken such loving and nurturing care of her. She urges all women to be aware of genetic factors relating to women's cancers and get regular checkups."
Grammer, 45, has two children via surrogate with her ex-husband, actor Kelsey Grammer.
