The Wanted - Nathan Sykes Suffered Panic Attack Moments Before Vocal Surgery

The Wanted star Nathan Sykes suffered an anxiety attack as he prepared to undergo vocal surgery in April (13), because he was so scared his career would be over at 20.

The Glad You Came hitmaker went under the knife on the day he turned 20 to repair a haemorrhaging vocal cord, and he admits he had a mini-meltdown in front of surgeons just moments before the operation.

He tells, "It has been a scary time, I think just before I went under the anaesthetic for the operation I kind of had a bit of a panic attack. I was like, 'My career is in your hands!'"

Sykes made his return to the stage at the Summertime Ball in London last weekend (09Jun13), much to the delight of fans, and he's credited The Wanted's loyal following with pulling him through the tough time.

Speaking to E! News, he says, "The fans have been incredible. They really kept me going. They were always online (on Twitter) going, 'How you doing? How you doing (sic)?' but I didn't want to say too much because they were always like, 'When you back (sic)?'. That was always the first question and I didn't want to say specific dates just in case I didn't make it. I had to see the doctor before my first performance and if he said no I didn't want to let anyone down."

Sykes insists he is feeling "a lot better than I did two months ago", but only time will tell if the operation was a complete success: "We'll find out in about a month's time."
