New York, NY, United States (4E) – Mick Jagger’s heart procedure went successfully in New York this week and the singer is currently resting and recovering, a source close to situation revealed.
A few days after the Rolling Stones postponed the American leg of their ‘No Filter Tour’ because of Jagger’s health concerns, reports came out that the rock star was scheduled to undergo heart valve replacement procedure.
A source told PEOPLE that the Rolling Stones frontman is doing well post-surgery, but doctors say he’ll need two weeks to fully recover.
Doctors are currently monitoring the singer’s conditions in case any complications would develop from the procedure, such as excess bleeding.
Jagger underwent the transcatheter aortic valve replacement, which is a less invasive procedure that is opted to avoid a major surgery. The singer’s doctors were able to access and repair his heart valve using a catheter that entered his femoral artery without having to open his chest.
According to Billboard, although recovery time for a heart valve replacement procedure is much shorter, Jagger is required to rest for at least four to five days so that the artery can heal without any bleeding problems and make a complete recovery. Although he can already go about his daily routine in a few days, it will take more time before he can be allowed to perform on stage.
The Rolling Stone’s ‘No Filter Tour’ was supposed to begin in April, but the show is being rescheduled to July with confirmed dates to be announced in the coming weeks. However, the Stones won’t be able to perform at New Orleans’s Jazz Fest this year as originally planned.
