Compared to performing with a ticking time-bomb of an appendix, we're sure that Elton John would choose the road to recovery any day! Plus, he finally gets to relax a little before he gets back to all of his adoring fans!
His appendectomy was a success!
He had the operation at Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco last Thursday! At 66, he had been playing shows while in pain and under stress, not really knowing what was wrong with him until he took the time to be properly diagnosed!
He SHOULD be returning to the stage next month, as long as everything goes smoothly in recovery! In fact, he confirmed he was returning to the stage on his website:
"Your well wishes have touched me deeply and will play a big part in my recovery. I cannot wait to see you all and thank you in person when I resume my concert schedule later this year."
We can't wait until you're back either!
Rest easy, Elton! You'll be just fine!
