Sandra Lee posted this photo to her Twitter account while recovering from a double mastectomy Saturday, and Sunday her team said she remained in a lot of pain at the hospital.

Celebrity TV chef Sandra Lee is improving but “still has a ways to go,” her team said Sunday.

The 48-year-old longtime love of New York Gov. Cuomo was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer in March.

She underwent a double mastectomy Tuesday and handled it well — but was in a lot of pain and remained hospitalized five days later.

Her staff was keeping the public updated via Facebook and Twitter.

“Sandra’s team here. She says today is a better day, but she still has a ways to go,” said a Sunday posting on Lee’s Facebook page.

“On her behalf, we want to thank so many people for reaching out and taking the time to send such beautiful flowers, fruits, chocolates, notes and emails,” the post continued.

Staff for Sandra Lee (l.) posted the photo at right on Facebook saying “we want to thank so many people for reaching out and taking the time to send such beautiful flowers, fruits, chocolates, notes and emails.”

Underneath it was a picture of a massive arrangement of beautiful white flowers, artfully displayed in what appeared to be a heavy crystal vase.

“A very special thank you to Robin Roberts, Elton John, David Furnish, Rita Wilson, Christina Applegate, Jon Bon Jovi, Judith Light, Martha Stewart, Mario Batali, Bryant and Hillary Gumbel, Jane Fonda and Dr Oz,” the post continued.

Cuomo had taken some time off from work to keep vigil at the hospital, where he’s been sleeping during Lee’s stay.

The TV homemaker had a lumpectomy on one breast before deciding to have both removed.

She went public last week with interviews in People magazine and on “Good Morning America” with Robin Roberts, herself a cancer survivor.
