Brian May is “doing fine” after leg surgery

“Everything still works.”

Brian May has updated fans as to his recovery after he underwent leg surgery.

The guitarist posted the updates on Instagram, first noting the cause of the surgery in the first place: “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!”

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

May then posted a video demonstrating that “everything still works,” writing “thanks for your kind messages, folks. I’m doing fine this morning – a little sore but home and ready for a relatively relaxing day.”

The updates come after news that Queen and Adam Lambert will return to the stage in 2020, with a European tour that kicks off in May, and includes five dates at the London O2 Arena.
