"Post-Op!" is a hospital based, reality TV show that's dying a slow death. The host of the show just isn't TV, in fact, he's been deemed a loser by TV crew and the non-existent ratings. Meanwhile, in a posh suburb, Katie Sampson isn't picking up the phone. It's her GP calling with bad news: she has a lump in her breast and she's going to have to go for tests at the hospital. What are you going to do? The next day, Katie goes to the hospital with her daughter, Sarah. Once the biopsy is performed - lights! camera! action! - Katie walks right into the reality TV show, broadcasting live. Already in a dark mood, she lets fly a stream of wisecracks and jokes about life and death and breast cancer. She's absolutely riveting and her presence is not lost on the producers. Stay tuned.
