Mick Jagger says he’s going to rehab with knee replacement after knee surgery
Mick Jager will be undergoing a knee replacement procedure next week after suffering a setback in his comeback from his recent knee surgery.
The American pop icon, who had a procedure to repair a torn ACL, said on Wednesday that the surgery would not affect his health and would only help him recover more quickly.
“I’ve got the same surgery, which is a knee repair,” Jagger said during an interview with ABC’s This Week.
“And I’ll be back in a couple of days.”
“I don’t think it’s going anywhere.”
Jagger, who has been working on rehab at his California home since the procedure was performed, said he felt better after the procedure than he had when he had the procedure last December.
“The rehab is going well,” he said.
“I feel better, I feel stronger, I’m going to get back to my normal routine.”
The 36-year-old has spent the past month on a diet of chicken and broccoli and a diet that has been tailored to his schedule and recovery.
The hip surgery was done in December and followed a three-month absence from the music industry after he suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Jagger had been hoping to return to performing in 2017 and beyond, but his knee issues have put that plan on hold and forced him to return.
He has been recovering at home with his wife and two young sons in California.
Jaggers comeback has been hampered by injury issues and the release of the songstress Katy Perry, who also suffered a knee injury.
He has also been sidelined with a back injury, but he said on Tuesday that he has been able to work on his form.
“It’s going great, I’ll see you on Wednesday,” Jager said.
