The 48 year old underwent the operation in May (15) after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but she fell ill earlier this month (Aug15) after developing a painful fluid build-up due to an infection.

She had to undergo another procedure to fix the problem, and she was discharged from Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City on Wednesday (12Aug15).

A message posted on her page prior to her release states, "We visited Sandra in the hospital this morning and we're happy to share she seems to be back to herself... She must stay on massive antibiotics for a couple of weeks to fight against infection... But... we're happy because we think she's won the match!... We just want to thank you for your outpouring of love, prayers and well wishes."
