ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Food Network television star Sandra Lee is recovering from breast cancer surgery.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH’-moh), her live-in boyfriend, says in a statement that Lee’s double mastectomy concluded early Tuesday afternoon and that she is doing “as well as can be expected.”

The 48-year-old lifestyle personality revealed her diagnosis on ABC’s “Good Morning America” last week. Her surgery was initially scheduled for late last week but was delayed after Lee came down with an upper respiratory infection.

In her message posted to Facebook before the operation, Lee thanked those who offered prayers and messages of support.

Cuomo accompanied Lee to the hospital on Tuesday and plans to take some personal time to be with her following the procedure.
