(AP) Kathy Bates says she is recovering from a double mastectomy.


The Oscar-winning actress tweeted on Wednesday that she was diagnosed with breast cancer two months ago. But in a separate post, she said she doesn't miss her breasts as much as "Harry's Law," her NBC law drama that was canceled last May.


An ovarian cancer survivor for "nine years and counting," Bates, 64, released a statement through her publicist saying that she decided to have the operation "after much consideration" and won't have to undergo radiation or chemotherapy. Her doctors have assured her she'll be around "for a long time."


"My family calls me Kat because I always land on my feet and thankfully this is no exception," Bates said. "I'm looking forward to getting back to work doing what I love to do."


Bates won a Best Actress Oscar in 1991 for "Misery," and this year is nominated for two Emmys: For "Harry's Law" and for her guest shot on "Two and a Half Men."
