New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert has shared an update after undergoing surgery earlier this week to remove a tumor on his spine.

“Things went really well,” Gilbert writes in an Instagram post that went up Wednesday. “They were able to remove almost all of it besides a microscopic amount of tumor that was in the bone. Once we get test results back from the tissue, we’ll be able to blast it with whatever treatment it needs so we can keep it at bay or even kill it completely.”

“All news has been good so far for what the situation is and things have been going great!” he adds. “First two nurses I saw post-op were big NFG fans which was really special. Their compassion and love me feel not alone.”

Gilbert shared earlier this that he would be having surgery to remove the rare tumor, called a pheochromocytoma. The musician was hospitalized with the same type of tumor late last year.
