Ted Dwane Surgery: Mumford & Sons Bass Player Thanks Fans After Procedure

Mumford & Sons' bassist Ted Dwane underwent surgery this week and is thanking fans for their support.

The musician received surgery to remove a blood clot from the surface of his brain. Dwane's emergency procedure prompted the band to cancel some major shows, including a scheduled headlining performance at Bonnaroo.

Dwane took to the band's official website on Monday to thank fans and to post a picture of himself post-surgery. "Bear with a sore head!" the message reads. "Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I’m home."

Mumford & Sons first broke the news of Dwane's condition last week, when a message was posted to the band's website. "Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment," the note read. "The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery."

Days later, the band gave an update on Dwane's surgery, taking a light-hearted approach to his condition. "It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery," the band wrote. "The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain."

While Mumford & Sons plan to reschedule the canceled shows, the band has yet to announce new dates.
