Brian May gave fans an update about his health after a heart attack in May, which was a ‘very hard hit’.
The Queen guitarist, 73, appeared on The One Show on Friday where she told viewers that she “regained her luster” a few months later.
He declared: ‘I am fine now. That’s all you need to know. I got very hard and very few hits. A series of medical events, I believe you can tell. It takes you too low.
‘So now I’m on physical exercise and cardio rehab and I feel like I’m turning a corner.
‘I think I’ve really got my shine in the last few days. But it’s been a while. It was tough. ‘
Brian’s doctors discovered his blocked arteries when he was treated for pain due to a rupture in his gluteus maximus and compressed sciatic nerve.
He revealed the news to fans in May, posting a video on Instagram saying: ‘I’m fit from biking, I’ve got a good diet, not too much fat, but, in the middle of the whole painful saga, I had a small heart attack.
‘I mean small, it’s not something that hurt me, it was about 40 minutes of pain in my chest and tightness and there was such a feeling in the hands, and there was sweat, you know, you heard,’ Is this a heart attack? ‘ ”
When he was seen in the hospital, doctors told him he would need either a triple heart bypass or stents, which would be a fairly minor operation and would let him go home the next day.
He chose the stents and added: ‘I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I think I’m in good shape for some time to come.
‘I’m not dead, I’ve come out and if it weren’t for the legs I’d be full of beans … I’ve only got one point where the legs are alive.
‘Because of this I was close to death, but the pain I felt was something different. But I’m good, I’m here, and I’m ready to rock. ‘
The One Show Show airs on BBC One from 7pm on weekdays.
