Nile Rodgers Reveals '100 Percent Recovery' From Cancer Surgery

He revealed he "did a lot of gigging and a lot of flying" before returning to Brooklyn, New York, to undergo surgery on the cancer at Strong Memorial Hospital. After he was hospitalized in August for an E.coli infection, Rodgers said doctors discovered a "mysterious growth on [his] right kidney" that proved to be "two different cancers within one mass".

Rodgers was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer in 2010, but was given the all clear three years later.

The incomparable Nile Rodgers has had a rough go over the past few years.

He promises to update us soon, and says, "this situation has delayed some big plans for this year, but what will happen next year is beyond any of my wildest dreams". Since then, he said, he had "attacked life with gusto" and "worked at an insane level". "My friend, musician extraordinaire Chris Cornell, would die this past spring".

He wrote: "After the last seven years of fantastic life, I would have never believed that my body would be invaded by another cancer. I'm Done. 2018 here I Come", the disco legend shared details of his recent health scare.
