Don Rickles Had A FLESH EATING Disease, Is Now Recovering!

| Filed under: HealthScary!

Don Rickles, the legendary comedian himself, has been fighting a flesh eating disease — something we thought only affected people hanging out in bacteria-laden water.

He even had to cancel SEVERAL shows because of the infection, located in his 87-year-old leg. The culprit? Necrotizing fasciitis!

Don then underwent three surgical debridements, plus a skin graft. We've seen people stay in bed for WEEKS after way less than that, so we're super impressed that he's already on the mend at his age! Apparently they caught it quickly enough!

Here's what his rep says:

“He has been rehabbing the leg, is back on his feet and is doing wonderfully. He is looking forward to be back on the road after the first of the year.”

Feel better soon, Don!
