WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES

Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has declared that he has his “life back” after successfully undergoing hand surgery to treat Dupuytren’s contracture and carpal tunnel syndrome.

The 61-year-old musician recently revealed that he underwent surgery on his right hand after facing two “debilitating issues” that affected his ability to perform and his daily life. Lee shared the news in an Instagram post along with several very graphic photos of his hand taken during and after surgery.

“Well kids, it’s time for show and tell… I hope this doesn’t ruin your lunch,” Lee warned her followers at the beginning of her caption.

He continued, “Just 3 weeks ago, @drcohenhandsurgeon had hand surgery on me. It addressed 2 debilitating issues for me as a drummer, keyboard player, and pretty much everything to do with my right hand.”

“And yesterday was fucking monumental for me to the point of crying… I’ve got my life back and my sources of income back,” Lee added. “And for you drummers and musicians, I can say that it is possible to fix it!”

The three-time Grammy Award winner also included a video in his post in which he is seen twirling his drumsticks.

“I can swing my canes again…I haven’t been able to in a few years due to Dupytren’s contracture and carpal tunnel issues that are now gone!” he wrote. “@drcohenhandsurgeon and the staff there I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL.”

Dupytrens contracture is a “gradual thickening and hardening of the tissue under the skin of the hand,” according to the Mayo Clinic. The condition may cause one or more fingers to bend toward the palm and be unable to straighten.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist. Common symptoms include wrist pain, tingling, numbness and weakness, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Lee’s post was flooded with supportive comments from her friends, family, and fans along with some complaints about the images she shared.

“yaaaayyyyy,” Lee’s wife, Brittany Furlan, commented, along with a series of black heart emojis.

“Yahooo to you,” wrote Lee’s ex-wife, Heather Locklear. She later added: “Okay, happy for you both, but I throw up,” along with a sick face emoji.

“I’m very happy and proud of you,” said John 5, Lee’s bandmate in Mötley Crüe.

“All those bulls…just so you can swing a stick. Great!” DJ Deadmau5 joked.

“Fair bro, Dr. Cohen also did my hand surgery and I’m thankful that everything is like new and stronger after I broke my finger,” added former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum.

Dr. Glenn Cohen, who performed the surgery, praised Lee, writing, “He has worked hard and followed all instructions with great care!”

He continued, “You’re crushing it and you’re going to keep getting better. 3 weeks is too early for major hand surgery!! I can’t wait to see that hand do what it does best at high volume!”

Lee co-founded Mötley Crüe with Nikki Sixx and Greg Leon in early ‘198, and were joined a few months later by singer Vince Neil and guitarist Mick Mars. The band, which now consists of Lee, John 5, Sixx and Neil, concluded their world tour with Def Leppard in November.

Mötley Crüe will return to the road in the spring with their next show taking place on May 24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The band is also scheduled to perform at the Louder Than Life festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, the Iowa State Fair and the Minnesota State Fair.
