Nick Cannon Recovering, Tweeting After Surgery

Days after being hospitalized for mild kidney failure, Nick Cannon took to Twitter yesterday (Jan. 6) to reveal that he had undergone surgery.

“Just left the operating table and I was awake during the whole procedure,” the multi-talented 31-year-old tweeted, adding the appropriate hashtag “#OUCH.”

Cannon’s tweet came hours after wife Mariah Carey hopped on the social networking site and said she was hoping the singer, actor and TV star — not to mention father of her newborn twins — would be “discharged within 2 days.”

Earlier this week, Cannon was transferred from Aspen, Colo., where he reportedly fell ill during the Christmas holiday, to a hospital in Los Angeles. In a Jan. 4 Twitter post, he thanked fans for their “love, prayers and concern.”

Despite having gone under the knife, Cannon appears to still be in good spirits, and after his initial post-op tweet, he hit fans with another reassuring message.

“Recovering…about to be stronger than ever!” he wrote, once again dropping a spot-on hashtag, “Ncredible!”
