Tommy Lee Undergoes Hand Surgery: ‘I Have My Life Back’

In a recent Instagram post, Tommy Lee revealed undergoing hand surgery that has significantly improved his ability to perform.

The Mötley Crüe drummer shared a series of photos showing his journey from hand surgery to recovery. The rocker’s recent post highlights the successful operation performed by Dr. Glenn Cohen, addressing two major issues that hindered his performance as a drummer and keyboard player. Lee’s caption detailed the surgery and its impact, stating:

“Well, kids, it’s show and tell time… hope this doesn’t wreck your lunch. Only 3 weeks ago, I underwent a hand surgery by Dr. Glenn Cohen. He addressed 2 debilitating issues for me as a drummer, keyboard player, and pretty much everything to do with my right hand. And yesterday was f*cking monumental for me to the point of tears…. I have my life back and my money makers.”

A Newfound Skill Regained

He continued, noting his newfound ability to twirl drumsticks:

“And for you drummers and musicians out there, I can say it’s possible to fix! And in the last clip, I’m able to twirl my sticks again… I haven’t been able to do that in a few years because of the Dupytrens Contracture and carpal tunnel issues that are now gone! Dr. Glenn Cohen and the staff there, I am forever grateful.”

The Injury That Preceded

Before this recovery, Lee’s hand injury had fans worried, especially after his wife Brittany shared an Instagram story last month of him in the hospital with a bandaged hand, captioning it:

“Such a champ.”

No details were given regarding the nature of the injury at that time. Despite the setback, Lee appeared optimistic, though the incident raised concerns about Mötley Crüe’s ability to meet their scheduled performances.

Mötley Crüe is on a hiatus from live shows but is expected to resume in May at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The band’s tour includes stops at major festivals like Welcome to Rockville in Daytona Beach, Florida, Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and will conclude at the Ottawa Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in July. Lee’s successful surgery comes as a relief, ensuring his participation in the upcoming concerts.
