Oasis’s Liam Gallagher says he needs a new hip but would rather be in pain | Music | Entertainment

The former Oasis frontman, who has arthritis as a result of a thyroid drawback, admitted he would choose “being in pain” to take care of the mirage of youth, than struggling the “stigma” of the operation. The 49-year-old Rock N’ Roll Star singer stated he would go for Debbie Gwyther pushing him in a wheelchair as an alternative.

Liam added that he has to take natural sleeping tablets to nod off and might now not jog on Hampstead Heath.

He informed Mojo journal: “I’ve got arthritis, bad. I went to get it checked and my bones are mashed up.

“The girl was going, ‘You would possibly want a hip operation, a substitute’ – no approach. ‘It’s not as unhealthy as you suppose, the recovery will be two months.’

“You’re all right… I think I’d rather just be in pain – which is ridiculous, obviously. I know that; just get them fixed.

“But it is also the stigma, saying you’ve got had your hips changed… What’s subsequent?”

The dad of four confessed the “one in a million” chance he might die during the operation was enough to make him rather use a wheelchair.

He added: “I’d be in a position to do all of it after the op.

“I’d be like [dancer] Louie Spence, throwing my leg over my shoulder while playing the flute. I don’t mind a little pain. Keeps you on your toes.

“Pain is OK. I’m undoubtedly on the downwards slide, although… acquired the outdated thyroid. When the climate’s chilly my hips are like snap, crackle and pop… I would like heat.

“I can’t sleep at night for the pain, tossing and turning.

“So I’m on the natural sleeping tablets and so they’ve saved my life.

“One of them: seven hours out – no pain, nothing. No, no… I can’t [have the replacement]. Just the thought… They have to break your hips.

“I requested the woman what the draw back was: ‘You would possibly die in surgical procedure. It’s a one in a million likelihood.’ I’m not going to crisp it having my hip cracked, thanks. I’d rather be in a wheelchair, with Debbie pushing me.”

Liam and brother Noel, 54, shot to fame in the 90s with Oasis, which turned the largest rock band in the world.

The group cut up after a Paris bust-up in 2009. This summer time Liam will headline two sell-out exhibits at Knebworth Park, Herts on June 3 and 4.
