The Cribs star Ross Jarman is recovering after undergoing spinal surgery.
Doctors operated on the British drummer's back to correct a herniated disc, which was pushing on a nerve and causing him severe pain.
The rocker sustained the injury a few years ago but has been too busy touring to schedule the surgery, according to his brother and Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman.
In a post on his Facebook.com page, Ryan writes, "Surgery was the only option but due to our busy touring schedule there never seemed to be a good time to do it, so it kept getting put off and put off again. Things kept getting worse however to the point where even just sitting on a plane became a grueling ordeal, so the decision was made to have the operation after festival season finished this year."
The 26 year old is expected to make a full recovery in time to begin working on the band's next album.
Ryan adds, "It was a pretty gnarly procedure, involving the spinal cord actually being moved, and what follows now is six weeks of rest and rehabilitation, but then we will be back to work on album number five."
