Brian May Undergoes Knee Transplant Surgery

Queen guitarist Brian May recently underwent knee transplant surgery.

May made his medical issue public through series of posts on his website, including an admission on July 27 that his "knee is deteriorating in spite of intensive physical therapy. I'm heading for the knee replacement op."

He checked in again on August 5, posting a snapshot of the knee and saying, "thought this might make you smile, folks. I dedicated my old knee to Mount Teide. It has done good service. I need a new one, and my lovely surgeon is going to oblige, tomorrow morning. So here's a last look."

From his hospital bed the next day, May updated fans one last time, "I'm THROUGH!!! With a shiny new knee. This no walk in the park (!) but for 1st time in months I feel optimistic and free of that OLD pain. Thanks so much for the great messages - it means a lot."
