The rapper has been having a pretty rough time of it lately
Professor Green just revealed the full extent of his health issues.
The 33-year-old rapper has shared a number of Instagram photos from hospital in recent days, which have obviously caused worry among fans. But now he’s explained exactly what’s going on.
He uploaded a series of new snaps earlier today, writing alongside them: ‘Right. I’m on the mend. Turns out I’m only the second person in the world to have an allergic reaction to the mesh used to fix my hernia. I’ve had a giggle on instagram but here’s the reality [sic].
‘I didn’t wanna worry anyone, least of all my nan. I came back to hospital with pnuemonia, a partially collapsed lung, distension, fluid build up and ileus (my guts had shut down). I’m getting better. Everything is starting to work again, all my bloods are looking better and I finally got some sleep last night.

‘If I seemed a bit emotional at times it’s been because I’ve been awake most hours of each day and it becomes quite a lot like torture when you have your entire life taken away from you and you’re stuck in a room in the most uncomfortable and painful situation you’ve ever been in (I’ve only been taking paracetamol as opioids make the problem even worse), not to mention the anxiety that comes with not knowing why any of this is happening.
‘For anyone who thought I was making a mountain out of a molehill..: I don’t even wish this upon you. I wish worse: LOVE ❤
‘PS: I’ve been nil by mouth for a week. It isn’t hard to p*** me off right now. I NEED A F***ING NANDOS.’
Despite his ordeal, Pro – real name Stephen Manderson – is staying positive.
He went on to speak about upcoming projects, and to shut down those who’d called him a ‘sap’ for crediting his girlfriend Fae Williams for her support.
He said: ‘PPS: SAP? I’ve dealt with more f***ery than most and I still make light of it. I’m about to drop a BELTER for summer and got three new docs coming which I’ve filmed or filmed partially while I was sick as a dog. They’re still fu***ing brilliant.
‘Life is great and if I can’t salute my hard b*stard of a woman without being called a sap or you thinking I’ve gone ‘soft’ 😷😂😂😂😂 then you man must be verrrrry insecure, I feel sorry for the ladies in your lives. Love is for grown ups and those comfortable enough in their skins to express it. ❤LOVE X100000000.’
Sending you our best wishes for a speedy recovery, Pro.
