Wilko Johnson is making "excellent progress" after undergoing an operation to have a pancreatic tumor removed, NME notes.
The nine-hour procedure was undertaken at Adeenrbooke's Hospital in Cambridgeshire. A statement has been released via the official Dr. Feelgood Facebook page:
"We're sure you will be as delighted as we are that after making excellent progress at Addenbrooke's over the last few weeks, Wilko is now convalescing back at his home. Naturally after such an extensive procedure, Wilko is extremely tired, and it will take him some time to recuperate, so he asks that you respect his privacy, but we had to share this incredibly positive news.
"On behalf of Wilko and his family, another huge thank you for your magnificent support over recent months - it really means a great deal to Wilko - and please join us in thanking the staff at Addenbrooke's for everything they have achieved in some extremely difficult circumstances."
Johnson canceled all future live shows and public engagements to undergo the procedure, including a performance at Glastonbury.
