Sir Paul McCartney has heart operation as divorce takes its toll
Last updated at 10:59am on 2nd January 2008

Sir Paul McCartney has undergone heart surgery, it has been revealed.
The 65-year-old musician has been mired in a bitter divorce battle with Heather Mills for the past 18 months.

He complained of feeling unwell in the autumn after a series of stressful rows with Ms Mills, 39, over arrangements for their four-year-old daughter Beatrice and the former model's public tirades against him.

Secret operation: Sir Paul McCartney had 'routine' heart surgery in the autumn after feeling unwell following a series of rows with estranged wife Heather Mills

Sir Paul had a coronary angioplasty - a procedure that helps unclog arteries - after seeing a Harley Street specialist at the London Clinic, according to reports.

The former Beatle recovered from the surgery quickly because he took regular exercise and had a trim physique, a friend said, adding: "He has always been in exceptional health, which is remarkable when you think of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle he once had."

Sir Paul was well enough to perform a duet with Kylie Minogue in front of millions of viewers at New Year. The pair sang his hit Dance Tonight during Jools Holland's New Year special on BBC2.

Recovered: Sir Paul made a speedy recovery and performed with Kylie Minogue on Jools Holland's New Years Eve show

Coronary angioplasty is performed by inserting a thin tube into blood vessels in the groin and threading it up to the aorta, where a small balloon at the end of it is then inflated. The balloon squashes fatty deposits blocking the artery, allowing blood to flow more freely.

A short wire-mesh tube called a stent is usually left behind to support that part of the vessel.

Football star David Beckham's father Ted, 59, underwent the same operation after he had a heart attack.

Sir Paul and Ms Mills are still hammering out the terms of their divorce settlement after their fouryear marriage collapsed in 2006.

Next month the High Court will decide how much Ms Mills will receive of his £800 million fortune.

Ms Mills could be sued by her former law firm for £2million. Last month Mishcon de Reya was said to be looking at legal action of its own to recover its fees after a preliminary divorce hearing failed to reach a settlement.


GET WELL SOON!

Thankfully, it seems that Paul and the Doctors caught his ailments in time before suffering a much more serious problem, at least lets hope for the best and send Paul our good vibes.

Wow. I remember there being rumblings about health problems for him back then. I'm glad that they managed to keep it quiet, as I'm sure that helped with his recovery. I hope everything continues to go well, and I'm glad that he's keeping an eye on his health. He's been pretty health conscious since the early '80s and I am very thankful for that!

I'm kind of glad I didn't know at the time. I would have worried.

I hate being reminded that the Beatles are mortal. The world without them just doesn't seem right.

Hope he continues to do well. He's done all the right things
as far as quitting smoking and being active and all that. I do
remember that a lot of Linda's recipes included heavy cream and
butter and stuff like that, things that should be used only sparingly
in a healthy diet.

That's true for me too, VB. In my mind, they are still 20-something!

That explains why he was looking so gaunt. Paul is such a health nut that I'm sure he's following doctor's orders. Angioplasties seem to be the norm among most people these days and are nothing to worry about. I'm just glad his heart is all fixed up.

He certainly doesn't need the added stress of you know who upsetting him.

I remember when they said he had a minor procedure and thought that was what he had, had done then!

This sounds hectic when they mention 'heart problems' and I do not want to sound 'nonchallant' about it, but we also need to be aware that if I read this right this is the 'balloon' operation... I do not know the exact medical terms in English, but I know quite some people who have had this who feel so lucky that this has been done to them and most call it a 'routine' thing afterwards and when we look back on Paul's 'activities' the past months it sure has done him good.
