Ted Dwane has assured fans he is on the road to recovery

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has posted a picture on the band’s official blog revealing he is at home and recovering from emergency brain surgery.

Ted Dwane has thanked fans for all the support following his surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.

In a post on the band’s official blog, Ted shared a picture of himself with his head shaved post-surgery, and wrote: “"Bear with a sore head! Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I’m home."

The good news, that Ted’s surgery had been a success, came earlier this week (June14) when the folk band posted an update on site which said: “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 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."

Mumford & Sons had to cancel a number of US shows to give Ted time to recover, but they are still planning to headline Glastonbury at the end of the month. The band have confirmed they have "no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour".
