Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande recently underwent emergency surgery for a kidney infection. This news comes shortly after the drummer underwent surgery for a broken leg.
“Yesterday I was in a physical therapy session and I had a sudden pain in my abdomen. I had to rush to the hospital. I was diagnosed with a kidney infection (pyelonephritis) due to a stone that blocked the Ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder). I had to go into an emergency surgery to have a ‘double J’ inserted between the bladder and kidney to unclog the canal. The calculus is still there, but it is necessary to deflate the kidney first and then resolve the stone issue.
More than a special thanks to @zecabaldocchifisio who took me to the hospital while I was screaming in pain. Thanks to my wife @garciaariane_ who is with me every second, love you Peca. Thank you doctor @dr.gustavo_urologia who promptly volunteered to do the surgery. I greatly appreciate the assistance of @dr.marcosviniciuscredidio and @draerikasimplicio
I’m already at home to continue with the physiotherapy for my leg. I’m fighting to be back as soon as possible. I ask for your support.”
