The 48 year old, known for her show Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, first underwent the operation in May (15) after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and reports surfaced last week (beg03Aug15) suggesting she was back in hospital to treat a painful fluid build-up.

Lee gave her fans an update on her Facebook page on Monday (10Aug15) confirming the story and revealing she was going back to hospital to treat a nasty infection.

She wrote, "I did my very best to avoid this (when I tell you I did everything, I mean everything - modern, Eastern and holistic) but infection is an incredible monster. I am a long way from where I was and a long way from where I need to be, but at this point I understand that right now I just need to complete this unexpected phase of a tough journey.

"Right now the ball is in my court and it's time for a mean backhand - and I am taking that shot... So my plan for tomorrow is game, set, match!"
