She revealed that she still needs to undergo another surgery to remove the remaining lymph nodes. Hopefully, there will be no cancer cells or else, radiation treatment begins.

Big Ang expressed her fear for the next surgery.

“Plastic surgery? OK, 20 years ago. But as I got older, I got scared. I hate anesthesia,” Big Ang admitted.

Big Ang already has five grandchildren. Interestingly, her grandson Anthony was supposedly born at the same time as her stay in the hospital. However, he was born immediately after Big Ang was discharged.

“I swear that baby waited for her to get home,” says Big Ang’s best friend, Jennifer Patafio.
