Eddie Van Halen is back home, hanging out with his son after suffering through a few rough days in a hospital with what we’re told were complications from his cancer treatment.
Sources close to the legendary guitarist tell TMZ … he was admitted to the hospital last week with intestinal issues and abdominal pain. We’re told both were the result of a bad reaction to the drugs Eddie is taking to battle throat cancer.
He was released Sunday and we’re told he’s doing fine now.
We broke the story … the rocker has been flying between the U.S. and Germany for 5 years to get radiation treatment. Eddie believes he developed the cancer from a metal guitar pick he used more than 20 years ago — he would hold the pick in his mouth and has been told it could be the source of the cancer.
When he got home from the hospital … we’re told Eddie and his son, Wolfgang, hung out and rehearsed music. If ya don’t know, Wolfgang became Van Halen’s bassist in 2006.
Rock on, guys!
