British rapper Professor Green has been struck down with tonsillitis for the second time in as many weeks but he has ruled out surgery to ease his pain as he can't get the time off work.
The I Need You Tonight hitmaker was diagnosed with the throat infection several weeks ago and was put on a course of antibiotics, but he continued his busy touring schedule and the condition flared up again this week (beg10Apr11).
He writes in a post on Twitter.com, "F**k f**k f**k. So not resting up has led to my tonsillitis coming back twice as bad. I've hardly slept it hurts so much. S**tter."
But when one online follower suggested the hip-hop star undergo an operation to remove his tonsils, he replied, "I can't get the two weeks off I'd need to recover."
