Barbara Walters says she is "fully recovered" just two months after open heart surgery.

The ABC news anchor made her first TV appearance Monday since the procedure in May to replace a faulty valve. She checked in with her fellow panelists on "The View."

The 80-year-old said from her Manhattan apartment that she was never in serious discomfort from the surgery.

Walters will take the rest of the summer off. She says she will rejoin her comrades when "The View" begins its new season in September.
