Out of surgery, and I am feeling better than I ever expected. The nurses at the hospital are taking care of me and I am feeling so grateful.— Sharon Jones (@SharonLJones) June 12, 2013
Jones announced last week that doctors had discovered the tumor. The Brooklyn-based frontwoman of the Dap-Kings said she'd update fans throughout her treatment, and she kept her word. Jones, 57, tweeted an Instagram photo before entering surgery, and tweeted afterwards: "Tubes in my throat, tubes in my nose, tubes in my stomach, tubes in my--I'm all tubed up!" She hasn't lost her sense of humor.
Due to her health issues, Jones canceled a handful of tour dates and postponed the August 6 release date of her album with the Dap-Kings, Give People What They Want.
