Beastie Boy bandmate Adam” MCA” Yauch, shocked the world with his news of being diagnosed with cancer. Now after surgery to remove cancerous cells from his lymph node , he’s released a statement assuring fans that he’s “rapidly recovering” from surgery that took place last week. MCA sent out the statement Wednesday and in it says:

“I’m pretty well detoxed from the anesthesia that they pumped me up with to keep me under for all that time that took several days to get out of my system. My neck and jaw are still pretty stiff from the surgery, but it gets better everyday.”

He then went on to tell fans that he hadn’t taken any of the pain medication prescribed to him as of yet.

“I haven’t taken any of the pain meds, which supposedly speeds along the healing process, or should I say, taking them slows it down.”

Keeping things light he described his radiation treatment as, “blasting you with some kind of beam for a few minutes a day, 5 days a week, for about 7 weeks.”

Near the end of the statement he made sure to thank Jay-Z who so graciously took the spot of the Beastie Boys at the “All Points West” musical festival on July 31 in Jersey City, New Jersey after they cancelled for MCA’s surgery.
