Brian May reveals he has undergone surgery just one month before Queen tour

Brian May reveals he has undergone surgery just one month before Queen tour

Queen fans were left concerned about the band's upcoming tour after Brian May revealed he had undergone an operation on Monday.

Taking to Instagram, the legendary guitarist told fans he needed surgery to alleviate pain in his Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, but that he's "feeling good."

Alongside a photo of him giving a thumbs up while wearing a hospital gown, the 72-year-old musician wrote: "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.

"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 ! 😏)," he continued.

"So now I’ll be taking it easy just a bit for a while, but full recovery should be just in time for getting back out on tour in January – hopefully with a good pair of heels! THANKS for your good wishes, folks. No cause for alarm. Bri."

The next day, May shared another update about his recovery alongside a video of himself wiggling his bandaged legs after surgery.

He also thanked his fans for their support.

"Thanks for your kind messages folks," he wrote.

"I'm doing fine this morning – a little sore but home and ready for a relatively relaxing day. As you can see, everything still works! 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! Have a good day folks! Bri."

May had the surgery just one month before he's set to go on the worldwide Rhapsody tour with original bandmate Roger Taylor and singer Adam Lambert, the longtime fill-in for Freddie Mercury.

We're wishing him a speedy recovery!
