United Kingdom (4E) – Mick Jagger is back on his feet after undergoing a heart valve replacement procedure last week in New York.
The Rolling Stones frontman posted a photo of himself taking a stroll at the park, dressed casually in a dark blue dress shirt and gray cap. The photo was aptly captioned, “A walk in the park!”
The 75-year-old singer underwent a non-invasive procedure whereby doctors were able to access his heart valve by using a catheter that went through his femoral artery. Although the recovery period for a transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure is shorter, he is still under observation for any complications that may arise such as excess bleeding, Billboard reported.
Due to Jagger’s condition, the band has opted to reschedule their North American ‘No Filter Tour’. Instead of starting in April, the tour will now commence in July and new dates are expected to be announced soon.
Mick’s younger brother, Chris Jagger, told Sunday People that his brother is doing well. He added that his condition was discovered through a checkup.
The Clash singer Joe Strummer suffered from the same condition, but was not able to survive. Unlike Jagger’s case, however, Strummer’s heart valve problem was hereditary.
On Twitter, Jagger thanked his fans for all the support and prayers they’ve sent him and informed them that he was feeling much better after the surgery.
“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend,” the singer wrote. He also thanked the doctors and the hospital staff for “doing a superb job.”
