Hacken left a message at his website yesterday, disclosing that he was admitted to Queen Mary Hospital on Monday and received a gallbladder operation. On top of that, he succcessfully managed to avoid the paparazzi (referred 2 them as 'doggies' =P) and is now recuperating at home. In his message, he indicated that he had been having stomachaches since April, and initially thought it was just gastric.
It was only after he had an ultrasound that he discovered that it was gallstones. Hacken indicated that because he was busy with work, he had been putting the operation off until the pain got worse.
Hacken also openly thanked the doctor who did the surgery for him and all the nurses at the hospital. He also asks fans not to worry and indicates that he should be attending the UNICEF event.
