    Sharon Osbourne: I've Had a Double Mastectomy

    Having successfully fought colon cancer a decade ago, then discovering she carried the gene that made her predisposed to having breast cancer, Sharon Osbourne says it was a "no brainer" to undergo a double mastectomy, she reveals in a new interview.

    "As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: 'The odds are not in my favor,' " The Talk co-host, who recently turned 60, tells the U.K.'s Hello! magazine, adding that she didn't want to live under the cloud of cancer.

    "I decided to just take everything off," she reasoned. Osbourne underwent the 13-hour operation last summer, a family rep confirms to PEOPLE.

    In the interview, Osbourne says her recent health problems began with a leaking breast implant.

    "For me, it wasn't a big decision, she says. "I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl" – the 6-month-old daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's son, Jack Osbourne, and Jack's new bride Lisa (they married in Hawaii Oct. 7).

    "It's not 'pity me,' " says Sharon, calling hers "a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."

    I would do the same thing. I love my breasts, they've served me and my daughter well, but they are not my life.

    I had genetic testing and thank god I do not carry the gene, but if I had, I would have done this as well. Maybe not immediately, but eventually.



    Good for you Sharon!!!!

    I would have done the same thing too. A few months ago I had some genetic testing done because of my Chronic Pancreatitis. That same gene that causes CP is the one that causes cystic fibrosis. I thank God everyday that my son isn't effected.

    I am glad she did and glad she is open about it. To me,this would be the only way to go. Off!
