John Oates is on the mend.

After undergoing emergency gallbladder surgery last week, the Hall & Oates guitarist shared a health update with his fans on Instagram Wednesday (February 26).

"Last week I felt pain under my right rib and had to go in for emergency gallbladder surgery. Talk about frightening! I want to sincerely thank Vanderbilt’s Emergency Trauma and Surgical Critical Care Team who took me in the middle of the night," he captioned a photo of himself in a hospital bed. "So many of you and cannot remember all names- I apologize. Aimee for insisting we go to hospital and all your care and love. Pommier’s for driving 7 hrs straight to see me."

He added, "Now 6 days later getting ready to start the first show on H&O tour in Hershey tonight and Madison Square Garden on Friday. Without your unbelievable expertise- my recovery would not be what it is today- I am truly grateful! #vanderbilthospital."
