Sandra Lee has recovered enough after suffering complications from her double mastectomy to return home, her team announced Friday.

The celebrity chef was hospitalized Tuesday after experiencing what her rep described as "a heated feeling" and "tightness in her chest."

"As you may have heard our Sandra has been in the hospital for the last few days trying to fight off an infection. As she has shared in her many posts over the last several months, she has experienced several complications pre and post surgery. Sandra was hoping to avoid any further operations until her final reconstruction," a post on her Facebook page reads."She has had an incredibly difficult road of it, and in light of everything going on, she had been able to maintain her positive attitude and can-do spirit."


Lee, 49, was diagnosed with breast cancer in March and underwent a double mastectomy in May.

"Sandra will be allowed to go home over this weekend with heavy antibiotics and monitoring but will need to be back for review and possible surgery at the beginning of next week," the Facebook post continues. "The first course of action is to get the infection identified and under control."
