Isaac Hanson is "feeling lucky" after undergoing surgery to treat a pulmonary embolism this week. The 26-year-old, who is expected to make a full recovery, was hospitalized after he started experiencing shoulder and chest pains during a Hanson
gig in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday.
Isaac has suffered from the potentially lethal artery-blocking condition before in 2003, and immediately recognized the symptoms.
He tells People.com, "Having had this happen before, I started to be really suspicious of what it was. In the middle of the show, I said to someone: 'We may need to go to the hospital.'"
Isaac will start taking blood-thinning medication and is likely to need more surgery in six to nine months. He adds, "I'm feeling pretty good. I'm feeling lucky."
Hanson were forced to cancel a handful of dates following Isaac's illness, but plan to resume their tour in Knoxville, Tennessee on Monday.
