Queen guitarist Brian May reveals he just underwent a leg surgery, and that the said procedure was a success. The guitarist, who is now 72 years old, said he was experiencing some pain in his Achilles tendon for some time already. He relieved fans by saying he was on his way to full recovery mode, though, and will be able to catch up with the band’s upcoming tour dates.
In an Instagram post, May said “I’m done! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good. The theory is that it will release the excess tension in my Achilles tendon and get me out of a painful heel situation I’ve been in for many months. … I had the problem all through our last tour of the U.S.A. — and although adrenaline got me through, my running around was severely curtailed, and there were a couple of nights when I really couldn’t move at all around the stage (nobody noticed, it seems!).”
In an update post, May thanked fans for their get well messages, saying “I’m doing fine this morning. A little sore but home and ready for a relatively relaxing day. … Still got my sympathy bandage and my anti-clot sock on – but they come off tonight. There’s a small band-aid underneath covering a very small incision. I actually can walk, but stairs are a bit of a challenge. … Onwards!”
May will be resting to catch up on the band’s string of tours in Korea, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia, which spans from January 18th to the 29th of February next year.
