Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery.
Sources recently said that Mick will need to rest for four to five days to allow the artery to heal without bleeding issues, following the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure.
The operation was said to be minimally invasive, and medics repaired the heart value using a catheter to access a major artery – enabling him to avoid major surgery.
The Rolling Stones North American ‘No Filter Tour’ is now expected to begin in July.
