John Barrowman has appendix removed
Taking to his Instagram account after the operation yesterday (25.07.17), he said in a short clip: "I feel like I have been hit by a car. I'm just sore all over and my voice is sore because of the tube going down my throat. The staff in the surgery knew who I was, they were fans which was kind of funny. I was just lucky my appendix didn't burst, they caught it in time. I was in a lot of agony yesterday. I knew something was up, I felt really bad."
Although he's in a bad way, the 50-year-old actor - who also starred in the spin-off 'Torchwood' - has assured fans he's on the mend and will be back home "soon."
He added: "In the surgery they made three incisions on my belly and then did it by laser. I'm just glad it went well and hopefully I should get home soon."
And two hours later, John appeared to be in brighter spirits as he posed for a photograph of him in his TARDIS socks that had been knitted by a 'Doctor Who' fan.
He accompanied the shot with the caption: "Got my fan made #TARDIS socks on keeping my feet warm in the hospital. JB (sic)"
