Kathy Griffin returns to the hospital to undergo vocal cord surgery to get her voice back

Kathy Griffin returns to the hospital to undergo vocal cord surgery after losing voice during lung cancer treatment: ‘I’ll take your pity’

After announcing she was cancer-free on September 20, two-time Emmy winner Kathy Griffin revealed she was returning to the hospital for a 20-minute surgical procedure on her vocal cords on Tuesday.

‘Good morning. Yes, I’m feeling sorry for myself and I’ll tell you why,’ the 62-year-old lung cancer survivor – who boasts 3.9M social media followers – said.

‘Because I’m on my way to the hospital again, because I have to go into general to get another procedure on my vocal cords. So the good news is I get to go home today. But the last time I got this done, it hurt for like seven days. But I’m just being a baby.

‘But I want to get my voice back, you know, I’ll do anything. Also I wanted to tell you guys, I want your pity. Right, you know in movies, when they’re like, “I don’t want your pity, don’t feel sorry for me!” Hell yeah, I’ll take it I’ll take your pity. I’ll take your feelings of sorry. I love it. Bring it.’

On Instagram, Kathy received supportive comments from five-time Grammy nominee Carnie Wilson, Oscar winner Tatum O’Neal, Emmy nominee Mo Collins, and The Peripheral star Alexandra Billings.

Griffin – whose brother Gary and sister Joyce both died of cancer – lost her signature voice after her oncologist (who later ghosted her) removed half of her left lung in August 2021.

Luckily, the Illinois-born, Calabasas-based comedian will be cared for by her second husband – marketing executive Randy Bick – whom she wed in 2020 after nine years of dating and a brief four-month split in 2018-2019.
