Brian May shared a video of himself “dancing” and said he was “hot to trot” after undergoing leg surgery.

The Queen star, 72, revealed on Monday that he had undergone an operation for a problem with his heel that left him struggling to move around on stage.

He updated his followers with a video on Instagram on Wednesday, saying he was recovering well and showing off some brisk steps that he claimed was his version of a dance.

“Thanks folks!!” said the star.

“I’m in good shape – my procedure – a GASTRONEMIUS RELEASE – seems to have hit the spot.

“All credit to my amazing surgeon Mr Sinnett!”

Sharing a clip of himself strutting along, he said: “As you can see, my dancing is now back to ‘normal’!!! Ha ha!

“Yes – I’m a little tender around the calf, where the incision was made – but the principle of relieving the irritation on my Achilles Tendon by allowing this calf muscle to extend seems to be a very effective solution.

“Very clever. !! And so far? Recommended!! I’ll keep you posted!!”

“I’m HEELED!!” he said.

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
