ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Food Network star Sandra Lee has been hospitalized for complications from a recent double mastectomy.

Lee was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night to deal with a buildup of fluids and is expected to be monitored for a couple of days.

The 49-year-old “Semi-Homemade Cooking” star had surgery in May after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis.

Her boyfriend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, left a Billy Joel concert at Nassau Coliseum early to be with Lee when he learned of her hospitalization.

The hospitalization was confirmed to The Associated Press by a person close to the family who wasn’t authorized to speak about Lee’s medical condition and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A spokesman for Cuomo deferred questions about Lee to her representatives, who didn’t immediately return messages Wednesday morning.
