After her three surgeries, Jolie wants to get right back to work

Angelina Jolie, who underwent a preventive double mastectomy in 2013, is happy with her decision and says she is very “fortunate to have a good recovery”. The 38-year-old talked about her life post surgery in an interview with a magazine.

“I’m great! I’m very happy I made the decision. I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work,” Jolie told the glossy.

Jolie first wrote about her decision to undergo a total of three surgeries for a preventive double mastectomy in May 2013 after her doctors discovered that she had an “87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer”.

Her story gave her the opportunity to meet others in similar situations. “I feel very, very close – much closer – to other women, and women who are going through the same thing. Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women’s issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer,” she told the magazine.

“I’ve talked to men about their daughters’ and wives’ health. It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children.”
