Former Oasis guitarist Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs has posted an update following his first treatment for tonsil cancer.
The musician shared the news of his diagnosis last month and said that he would be taking a break.
“Just to let you all know I’m going to be taking a break from playing for a while,” he said at the time. “I’ve been diagnosed with tonsil cancer, but the good news is it’s treatable and I’ll be starting a course of treatment soon.
“I’ll keep you posted how it’s going, I’m gutted I’m missing the gigs with Liam and the band. Have the best summer and enjoy the gigs if you’re going, I’ll see you soon xxx.”
Posting this evening (May 16) following his first treatment, Arthurs said that he was “feeling OK”.
“I had my first session of radiotherapy this morning and am now having a course of chemotherapy which will finish at 6am, so it’s an overnight stay at the Christie Hospital,” he wrote.
“Another session of radiotherapy in the morning, then home. Thirty sessions of radiotherapy and two sessions of chemo in total, so I’ve started and am crossing it off.
