(hennemusic) Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has issued a health update to fans following a rough few months last fall, revealing that he is recovering from a surgery he underwent last month.

"I hope you're well," Ward posted on Facebook. "I'm re-starting the radio show on Saturday, February, 15, 2014. As many of you know, I've been in hospital for a while (our last radio show was in August 2013). I had a final operation on January 7, 2014, and I'm very pleased to say that a positive outcome has prevailed. I'm healing slowly and surely."

"On September 18, 2013, I thought I'd take advantage of the down time and have a right shoulder repair surgery," he continued. "Four days after that surgery, I had the perforated diverticulitis. I'm mentioning the shoulder surgery because approximately two weeks ago, we finally started the shoulder rehab.

"It'll be about six weeks before the frozen joints can be workable again. I'm hoping to be playing drums by mid-March 2014. I want to start back in with jam sessions with a jazz quartet, something softer before I start slamming again." more on this story
