Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande had to head home early from the band's recent tour after breaking his leg, where he underwent surgery to repair the injury. Now Casagrande was back in the hospital recently for a kidney infection. Casagrande said he was in physical therapy for his leg where he all of a sudden experienced a sudden abdominal pain. He was rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed with a kidney infection, where he (once again) underwent emergency surgery.

Casagrande confirms he's back at home recovering once again and is ready for another round of physical therapy. We wish Casagrande all the best in his recoveries from all the medical ailments he has going on. Because seriously, the dude has way too many of those happening and needs to stop now.

"New chapter. My social media is turning more into medical bulletins than music content haha. But this is what happened: Yesterday I was in a physical therapy session and I had a sudden pain in my abdomen. I had to rush to the hospital.

"I was diagnosed with a kidney infection (pyelonephritis) due to a stone that blocked the Ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder). I had to go into an emergency surgery to have a 'double J' inserted between the bladder and kidney to unclog the canal. The calculus is still there, but it is necessary to deflate the kidney first and then resolve the stone issue.

"More than a special thanks to @zecabaldocchifisio who took me to the hospital while I was screaming in pain. Thanks to my wife @garciaariane_ who is with me every second, love you Peca. Thank you doctor @dr.gustavo_urologia who promptly volunteered to do the surgery. I greatly appreciate the assistance of @dr.marcosviniciuscredidio and @draerikasimplicio .

"I'm already at home to continue with the physiotherapy for my leg. I’m fighting to be back as soon as possible. I ask for your support."
