May 25 (UPI) -- British rocker Brian May announced in an Instagram video this weekend that he recently suffered a "small" heart attack and had three stents put in to relieve his congested arteries.
"I'm good. I'm here and I'm ready to rock," the 72-year-old guitarist said in the video.
May explained he weighed his options and decided against undergoing triple bypass surgery.
He wrote in a message accompanying the post: "My medical adventures! Hmm... Sheer Heart Attack eh? Well, I think I always worried a little bit about that album title. I wondered if it might upset some people who had actually had heart attacks. I'm actually quite relieved now that I'm in that club - and I don't find it upsetting at all!"
About two weeks ago, May announced he was recovering after tearing his gluteus maximus muscle during a moment of "over-enthusiastic" gardening.
He said in Sunday's video that the gardening injury was real, but subsequent medical examinations also showed he had a compressed sciatic nerve and heart issues.
