Julia Louis-Dreyfus shared another update on her cancer treatment on Wednesday, saying she’s “ready to rock after surgery.”

“Hoorah! Great doctors, great results, feeling happy and ready to rock after surgery,” the “Veep” star wrote in a tweet accompanied by a post-treatment glamour shot. “Hey cancer, ‘Fuck you!'”

Louis-Dreyfus announced last September that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and has spent the past several months giving updates on her health status and sharing videos of support recorded for her by the cast and crew of “Veep.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last month, Louis-Dreyfus’s co-star Matt Walsh said they had begun work on the seventh and final season of the HBO political comedy, with filming scheduled to begin in August.

“We’ll start filming in August and it will air in 2019,” he said. “We’ve known for about a month. We’ve seen [Julia], she’s done some table reads, she’s doing well, she’s finished her last chemo, she’s in recuperation. Her perspectives have remained excellent throughout. She’s very well loved; she’s a tremendous person.”
