Jon Bon Jovi discussed his long road to recovery after he underwent a "major reconstructive surgery" due to an injury he sustained to his vocal cords.
As reported by PEOPLE, Bovi had the procedure done 19 months ago where his problem was repaired by putting in plastic implants.
Shortly after the diagnosis, the legendary rock musician expressed that he felt his craft was being taken from him.
"It's been a difficult road, but I found a doctor in Philadelphia who did something called a medialisation because one of my cords was literally atrophying. Sometimes people get nodules — that's pretty commonplace,” he said explaining his health crisis.
Providing further insights, Jovi continued, "Sometimes you (get) deviated septums, and things that (people have) done take (their) toll on (their) cords.”
“The only thing that's ever been up my nose has been my finger,” joked the Grammy winning artist who is known for songs such as Livin' on a Prayer and It's My Life.
"It was very difficult, this last decade, to contend with something that was out of my control.”
To show the differences between his vocal cords, he lifted up both of his thumbs saying “the strong one was really taking what was left of the weak one.”
"For the last almost two years now, I've been in this rehab getting it back together. I'm getting very close to feeling like myself again," he further stated.
On February 2, Jovi performed at the MusiCares Person of the Year award ceremony marking his first live performance in the past two years.
