Angelina Jolie Was Working On Her Next Movie Just FOUR Days After Her Surgery!

angelina jolie was working on her next project 4 days after her surgery

Angelina Jolie is NOT going to let a little thing like surgery keep her down!

The actress/director's strength has definitely not been in doubt lately after she revealed she had a double mastectomy and plans to have her ovaries removed to reduce her risk of cancer! But an article posted by her surgeon gives us even MORE of a reason to be inspired by Angie!

Dr. Kristi Funk of the Pink Lotus Breast Center released a detailed account of her medical journey in hopes of raising awareness for other women who might find themselves in a similar position, and there's one big detail that sticks out. Angelina was planning work on her next project just FOUR days after being under the knife!

The doctor writes:

"To a large extent, I believe recovery reflects expectation. Angelina expected to feel well, to be active. On Monday, the pathology returned and I called Angelina to confirm our biggest hope: all of the breast tissue was benign. On day four after her mastectomies, I was pleased to find her not only in good spirits with bountiful energy, but with two walls in her house covered with freshly assembled storyboards for the next project she is directing. All the while she spoke, six drains dangled from her chest, three on each side, fastened to an elastic belt around her waist."

W-O-W!

We're sure the work helped Angelina take her mind off of things, but this is CRAZY!

Four days after an operation like that and we'd probably still be in bed watching TV! Ha!

We just continue to be in awe by the incredible strength and bravery put on display by Angelina and her family with each passing day!

You go gurl!!

    I think the preventative steps she took was amazing. To be healthy and there for a long time for her kids. Having said that, how healthy can it be to be working 4 days after a surgery as serious as a double mastectomy? My Mother went through this surgery and I nursed her and know how important it was for her to heal. You have to take it easy. Good luck to Angie!!

    She's not a god-damned saint. She's an over-paid, under-talented actress who has millions at her disposal for the very best of care. Shut the fuck up about her already, you idiot fucking homo.

    Is anyone else concerned with the implications of Angelina Jolie's highly publicized double mastectomy? I get that this was a personal decision and that this is something highly weighted on individual circumstance but… let me get this straight. Am I supposed to believe that Western Medicine (run by greedy pharmaceutical companies without morals) will act in my best interests? You’re telling me that they will honestly inform me as to the likelihood that I will get cancer when they would obviously only profit from my fear and mutilation? In addition to that I am also supposed to accept that my potential for cancer solely depends on the genes I've inherited and that it has nothing to do with diet, lifestyle choices and the poisons in our environment. I am disturbed to see that this is what preventive medicine has boiled down to. There is a much bigger problem that needs to be addressed here and it’s not genes so spread your celebrity splashed propaganda elsewhere. In the meantime I’ll be busy avoiding our poisoned gmo food, our poisoned fluoridated water and maybe I’ll even buy some of that non cancer causing crystal deodorant to keep my girls healthy… I will not be blindly cutting them off because someone in a white coat wants a Ferrari to drive his mid life crisis around in.

    Stop canonizing the poor woman. I walked down for a smoke (years ago) after waking up from back surgery. The sooner you're able to get up and at 'em, the better you'll do.

    So in a rush and out of fear of dying like her Mom she had a Mastectomy for no reason.. This Drastic measure was a waste, she could have continued with routine test and Doctor visits.
