Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, after he underwent heart surgery earlier this month, posted a photo of him on his feet.
The 75-year-old wrote on April 11, saying, “A walk in the park!”
A week ago, Jagger wrote on Facebook that his heart-valve surgery was successful.
“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend—and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job,” he stated.
Fellow singer Lenny Kravitz commented on Jagger’s Instagram photo, saying, “Yeah man!”
“Love you Dada,” his daughter, Georgia May Jagger, wrote. His son Lucas Jagger placed with four red heart emojis in the comments section.
Weeks before that, Jagger and the Rolling Stones said they have to postpone their North American tour.
Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend – and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.
“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” Jagger stated. “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
Of the procedure, doctors accessed the singer’s heart valve via his femoral artery, Billboard.com reported, adding that they have “been monitoring the singer for any complications that could arise from the procedure, including excess bleeding.”

“Jagger will need to rest after completing the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), sources say. The minimally invasive procedure allows Jagger to avoid major surgery— doctors are able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest,” Billboard.com stated.
Fran Curtis, a spokesman, also stated that Jagger “is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery,” USA Today reported.
