Joshua Bassett has undergone emergency surgery after suffering "the worst pain of [his] life".
The 20-year-old singer-and-actor was rushed to hospital after an "uncomfortable feeling" became 10 times worse, and he went under the knife on Thursday (01.14.21), just hours before his new single 'Lie Lie Lie' dropped.
He shared a video of himself lying on a hospital bed, and added the caption: "welp... not the first place i assumed i'd be on my Lie Lie Lie release day... the ER!! (before you ask, no it's not covid.) after an unknown, uncomfortable feeling turned into, times 10, the worst pain of my life, i figured i'd just try to sleep. after multiple, very very ugly days and nights, i had no choice today but be taken to the hospital. i'd like to say thank you!!!! for all the support on the song!!! i've been doing what i can today to stay involved. had my first surgery tonight ! gonna rest at the hospital and the doctors will see what they see in the morn!
much love to all!
The 'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series' star - who hasn't revealed exactly what caused him to have an operation - also praised the "professional" doctors, and said one had branded him the "sickest patient in the hospital", but it's not known if he was referring to the slang term for sick, meaning cool.
He added: "(p.s.the doctors here are the sweetest, most professional people in the. they've made me feel very safe!)
(p.P.s. according to the doc, i now have the medal for "the sickest patient in the hospital." how cool!!!) (sic)"
