Robin Quivers, Howard Stern’s longtime radio wing-woman, announced last week that she would be undergoing “a procedure” to remove a newly discovered tumor on her bladder, a procedure that reportedly was performed on Wednesday, May 23.
Quivers was noticeably vague with her initial statements on the issue, stating on-air on “The Howard Stern Show” on Monday, May 14 only that she would undergo “a procedure” to remove a grapefruit-sized growth on her bladder, which had awakened her the previous weekend, preventing her from urinating.
Reports Examiner.com, following the emergency, Stern’s co-host of more than 30 years had a CAT scan, which revealed the tumor, and came to work the following Monday attached to a catheter.
“When you see me, I’m peeing,” Quivers joked. “It could be something not so bad. It could be really bad … Hopefully it’s something that can just be cut out.”
In response, Stern replied sarcastically, “Think of me for once. You’ll be dead and I’ll still have to do the show.”
