'Queen' Rocker Brian May Opens Up About Nearly Dying After Suffering Heart Attack Following 'Bizzare Gardening Accident!'
Brian May opened up about a scary experience that almost cost him his life! The 72 year old Queen rocker is very grateful to still be alive after a gardening accident and following heart attack!
His health struggles started with a ‘bizarre gardening accident’ which then led to him taking some strong pain killers while recovering.
Apparently, the pills sent him to what he described as a ‘nightmare world’ in previous posts and then he even ended up having a heart attack!
In a new clip he posted on his IG account, Brian opened up about what he went through and stressing how thankful he was to having survived.
‘In the middle of the whole saga of the whole painful backside, I had a small heart attack. I say ‘small,’ - it’s not something that did me much harm. It was about forty minutes of pain in my chest and tightness and that feeling in the arms and sweating,’ the rocker shared with his followers.
Luckily, his ‘wonderful’ doctor took him to the hospital immediately where it was discovered that he had three congested arteries!
Instead of having open-heart surgery, he chose to have three stents inserted.
‘I’m incredibly grateful that I now have a life to lead again. I was actually very near-death because of this, but the pain that I had was from something completely different, it’s funny how things work. I’m good; I am here; and ready to rock,’ he went on to say.
As for the caption, May made reference to the ironic title of Queen’s latest album – ‘Sheer Heart Attack!’
‘I always worried a bit about that album title. I wondered if it might upset people who'd actually had heart attacks. I am actually quite relieved now that I’m in that club - and I don’t find it upsetting at all! Take. care folks.’
