Brian May had some leg surgery this week.
The 72 year old Queen guitar man and actual astrophysicist had a procedure on his leg this week, after he’d been feeling some pain in his Achilles tendon. The surgery was a success, and May says he’ll be fully recovered in time for the bands planned tour dates in 2020.
“I’m done! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good,” May wrote on Instagram. “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!).”

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
