Famous U2 star Bono has actually suffered serious injuries in a recent bike crash. Earlier, it had been revealed that the star injured his arm in a cycling spill, but now it seems that he suffered multiple serious injuries.
The musician needed to undergo surgery after the accident. It all happened as Bono was biking through the Central Park, on Sunday. It has been reported that the U2 star was actually trying to avoid another rider, when the crash occurred. The musician was taken to the New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center’s Emergency Department and underwent multiple X-rays and CAT scans.
It seems that the surgery lasted no less than 5 hours, as the injuries were really serious. “[Bono] was taken emergently to the operating room … where the elbow was washed out and debrided, a nerve trapped in the break was moved and the bone was repaired with three metal plates and 18 screws,” a statement from trauma surgeon Dean Lorich indicated.
Until now there are no revelations on how much time will Bono need to recuperate. However, it has been said that the star will need intensive and progressive therapy for full recovery. So, there is no word on whether the famous band will make some changes when it comes to their upcoming tour.
U2 already cancelled their Tonight Show appearance this week. The decision was taken after Bono suffered his injury and was revealed by the band in a statement. “It looks like we will have to do our “Tonight Show” residency another time — we’re one man down,” the band wrote in their website.
“Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”
Hopefully, Bono will manage to improve his condition faster than expected, as fans are surely anxious to see their favorite musician on the stage once again. New information about Bono’s health are expected in the following days.
