Following last week’s announcement that she has breast cancer, Nightwish’s Floor Jansen has updated fans and revealed that her surgery to remove the tumour “went well without any surprises”.

The singer shares the positive news that, “I’m recovering well and should be up and about soon,” while adding, “It will take a few weeks to know what the findings are regarding the tumour and lymph node that will be tested.”

Last week Floor confirmed that, “If all goes as planned, I will be up and running in time for the European tour with Nightwish, that will start on the 20th of November,” but in the meantime, following her surgery, she says, “I’ll keep you posted.”

In a separate post-surgery tweet, Floor wrote: “I want to use this opportunity to thank the medical staff that took care of me. All done with so much care, empathy, and professionalism! I felt completely safe in your capable hands! You all are troopers, and not just in the hospital I went to, but worldwide. Thank you!!”

Take care, Floor – we’re thinking of you!
