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.
