“There’s just been tons of back and forth this month and a lot of emotions. I think I’ve probably cried every day,” she said in the clip, reflecting on the double mastectomy she underwent in November.

“Honestly guys, going through this process, you will not believe how excited I get over the tiniest bit of growth,” she continued. “I’m rocking a pretty tight buzz cut right now and I’m so happy about it. It just feels great. I’m not saying I look in the mirror and recognize myself, or feel spectacular, but I am happy about it.”

Miranda revealed she was currently in Houston to undergo another surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

“I had two positive lymph nodes; they took four lymph nodes out. And I had a positive margin in the breast area, which is kind of common when the tumour is right up against the skin. And I had two positive lymph nodes biopsied at the beginning of this, so we already knew they were there.

“Basically, I decided to have all of my lymph nodes removed, and I’m going to take out a piece of skin down here,” she said, pointing to her left breast.

“I’ll probably be able to sleep really well knowing that everything’s gone for the rest of my life,” she added.

Miranda went on to say that she was disappointing the surgery would push back her plans to return to USC for the spring semester.

“The really annoying piece about this is not the surgery that I’m having today, but because I’m having the surgery that I wasn’t anticipating, radiation gets pushed back,” she explained. “I was expecting to finish radiation before second semester started.”

“These are just cancer in college girl problems. I was so looking forward to a semester without anything, because obviously first semester I was carting back and forth doing chemo and losing my hair,” she continued, adding that her plan was to start her semester in January and then start proton radiation therapy at a clinic in Harlem.

The actress said of missing so much school for treatment, “I found that out yesterday, and I’m just like, so bummed about it. I sobbed for a long time yesterday. But whatever, I’ll take the change and adapt to it, as I always do. But that just is so frustrating I can’t even begin to get into it.”

She continued, “Wish me luck. Actually don’t even need it, it’s going to be totally fine and more simple than the last time.”

We’re wishing Miranda continued thoughts as she recovers from her surgery and cancer.
