In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Padilla said doctors have recently discovered an abnormal growth in her kidneys.

But Padilla said she remains hopeful that she won’t be needing a surgery.

“At Makati Medical (Center), they gave me the same finding May, June, July... Sana hindi lang lumala dahil mahirap na namang akong gumalaw for three months, walang trabaho,” she said.

Padilla said she will be consulting Dolphy’s nephrologist at the Cedars Sinai Hospital in the United States, with her friend, celebrity doctor Vicki Belo, offering to shoulder the expenses.

Meanwhile, Padilla shared that she still misses the veteran actor.

“Kahapon, I had a hard time kasi we went to his favorite grocery. Kapag naglalakad ka tapos pipiliin mo 'yung mga dapat mong bilhin, maaalala mo 'yung paborito niyang juice. So, wala, lakas lang ng loob. Kasi kapag nagpadala ka sa hina, siyempre naiisip mo na may pamilya ka pa na kailangan mong suportahan," she siad.

Padilla will be leaving for the United States but she will return to the country to commemorate the 40th day since Dolphy’s death. – from a report by Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
