Avicii Recovering From Ruptured Appendix And Gallbladder Surgery

Swedish DJ and producer Avicii is recovering from surgery that he was forced to have on Saturday, which caused him to cancel his performance at the Ultra Music Festival this weekend.

On Saturday he underwent surgery and told fans after the procedure, "Turns out I had a ruptured appendix on top of my sick gallbladder…both were removed during the operation. Now I feel like s*** but at least I'm on the road to recovery."

Prior to the surgery he tweeted fans, "It's a routine procedure and all going well, I expect to be fully recovered and back on my feet in time for my US True Tour. Thanks for your concern everyone, it means a lot to me!"

On Friday he told fans in a series of tweets, "I'm really sorry but as some of you have already heard, I will not be playing Ultra Festival this weekend. My fans know that I have had issues in the past with my stomach and pancreatitis…I woke up on Wednesday morning with serious pain but I flew to Miami anyway, hoping that it would go away. The pain was still there when I landed so I went straight to hospital. I was treated and left later that night.

"Unfortunately, the pain came back yesterday afternoon and I returned to the hospital where they admitted me to stay overnight. My doctors have decided to operate and remove my gall bladder tomorrow morning."

He will have until April 10th to recover from the surgery. That is the date that he will be launching the U.S. tour that he mentioned in the Twitter post. Read his twitter page for any updates.
