Yes, it’s me, I’m back. I was out because I was dealing with something called sciatica, which is basically a bulging disc in your back and it impacts the sciatic nerve, which sends pain down your leg.
She then revealed that she has been using a walker to aid her to get around and held up the equipment for her fellow co-hosts to observe.

I have a walker, which kind of freaks me out I didn’t know that I needed it.
She went on to say after taking her first step with the walker, she knew this is her new best mate.
She's just gliding along, Goldberg jokingly stated. That's exactly what happened to her, and it's said to appear from nothing.
On social sites, Whoopi's followers sent their support and positive thoughts to the EGOT victor.
One fan tweeted,
Glad @WhoopiGoldberg is back!! I too suffer from sciatica and other back and neck issues and it's painful
Welcome back Whoopi. Praying for speedy recovery
The third pleaded,
Glad you're back Whoopi, take care of yourself please!!!!
Whoopi was off The View for numerous weeks in early 2019 due to double pneumonia and sepsis. Thankfully, despite being informed she was on the verge of death, she recovered quickly.
