The recovery process requires Osmond to stay quiet for three straight weeks—no singing, talking, or even whispering. Many fans have been expressing their support for the singer, wishing him well and a speedy recovery.

In response to some comments, Osmond assured his fans that the surgery went well and that the doctors and nurses at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston are “the nicest.”

Osmond commented on his post saying, “It’s going to be difficult, that’s for sure. But I’ll do it. I’ve done more difficult things like winning DWTS,” referencing his time on season nine of Dancing With the Stars
