Queen’s legendary guitarist Brian May posted a new photo of himself from the hospital on his official Instagram page, and he made an announcement after serious leg surgery.

In Brian May’s statement, he said that he had a tough surgery because he suffered during his last tour in the United States, and he feels better now. He also added that he could take the stage again in January.

Here’s what Brian May 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. I had the problem all through our last tour of the USA – 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 !).

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.”

Bri also posted a video after the support messages from the fans and thanked them. He wrote:

“Thanks for your kind messages folks. 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.”

X-Factor competitor Talia Dean commented and said this:

“Be well xx.”

“Ouch! Sounds painful praying for a speedy recovery!!”
