When walking on crutches, it is only the mop that reveals his identity.

Queen guitarist Brian May took his first steps after tearing his gluteus maximus – an injury that prevented him from walking unassisted.

The 72-year-old musician said he was in a “nightmare world” and had to use heavy painkillers and physiotherapy after injuring his buttock muscle while “gardening too enthusiastically” .

The rocker looked already fed up with crutches as he hobbled in West London over the weekend.

In an Instagram post, he said, “I’m relying on these” crutch “devices to get around … hopefully not for long. “

May, who is married to former EastEnders star Anita Dobson, 71, also said the nerve pain from her injury “paralyzed my brain.” He said, “I felt it was taking on my personality … I was in a nightmare world. “

Sharing a video update on Saturday, the rocker told his 2.4 million Instagram followers:

“I have great help in pain management and rehabilitation. Today I can sit and play slowly, holding on to almost painless things. It’s amazing what real pain does to you. ”

“I’ve always been a bit of a blow to my tolerance for pain levels – like not having Novocaine shots at the dentist or whatever – But that nerve pain that came into my body about three weeks ago – no, it wasn’t a glute thing after all – paralyzed my brain.

“I felt it was taking over my personality. I woke up feeling that the pain was somehow me, and I was having trouble finding my body. And I gave in and took the heavy painkillers, and in the end I was in a nightmare world.

“The only thing to do was to kick everything and get out. But I could only do it because I had obtained precious help in physiotherapy and osteopathy. I’ll tell you the whole story one day, but for now … have a good weekend. “

Earlier this month, Brian announced on Instagram that he was in hospital sharing a selfie of himself in a surgical mask.

He wrote, “I managed to tear my big bottom to shreds in an overly enthusiastic gardening moment.

“So all of a sudden I find myself in a hospital being scanned to find out exactly how much damage I got.

“It turns out that I did a thorough job – a few days ago – and I won’t be able to walk for a while … or sleep without a lot of help, because the pain is relentless. “

The muscle, the largest in the body, controls movement of the hip and thigh.

May told fans that he needed to “darken” to get “complete rest” and asked for “healing of the silence” rather than “sympathy”.

The veteran rocker entertained locked-out fans with “micro-concerts”, musical tutorials and #JamwithBri sessions in which he invites fans to add their own interpretation of his songs.
