Prostate cancer surgery left Elton John needing rehabilitation.
John, 72, discusses his operation two-years-ago and what sort of effect it had on his body. The “Tiny Dancer” singer opens up to BBC One’s “Elton John: Uncensored”, per DailyMail. John suffered a major infection following the surgery
“I literally had to learn to walk again. I was extremely sick,” the music icon explains. “Luckily I survived it. Now I am fine. But there are very few bits of me left!”
“There is no hair, a pacemaker, there are no tonsils, there is no prostate, there is no appendix,” he continues. “I have had kidney stones. I am like the ‘Bionic Woman’. I am like Lyndsay Wagner or Steve Austin. Whichever one you want to call it.”
John speaks with Graham Norton for “Elton John: Uncensored” which premieres on Nov. 28.
