Christina Applegate Applegate200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Christina Applegate will undergo reconstructive surgery following a double mastectomy, TV Guide reports.

I still have quite a process until this is done," the actress says. "Yes, it's hard. It sucks. But I'm not a victim."

She will undergo reconstructive surgery near her 37th birthday, at the end of November. She had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer in July.

Applegate, who clocks long hours on the set of her series "Samantha Who," changed her outlook on life after the diagnosis.

"I started looking for a beach house the day I found out I had this little disease," she says. "You just kind of go, 'What are you waiting for to get the things that you want and the things you dream of?'

"I don't own tomorrow or yesterday - today is all I've got," she adds. "And if I don't make today good, then I'm only gonna be p-ssed off tomorrow!"
