Mumford and Sons bass player Ted Dwane has thanked fans for their support after being discharged from hospital following brain surgery.

Dwane posted a short message alongside a picture of his freshly shaved head on the Mumford and Sons website earlier today (June 17). "Bear with a sore head!" reads the message. "Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I’m home."

The bass player required surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain earlier this week. The folk band posted an update on their Facebook page on Friday (June 14) which assured fans Dwane was on the road to recovery. "It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal."

Mumford & Sons cancelled a number of US shows to allow Dwane the chance to recover, but they are still due to headline Glastonbury at the end of the month. The band have confirmed they have "no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour".

Along with headlining Glastonbury, Mumford & Sons are scheduled to play their biggest ever headline show at London's Olympic Park on July 6. The outdoor event, which is the first non-festival headline show to take place on the renovated London 2012 Olympic Games site, will also feature Vampire Weekend, Ben Howard, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, Haim and newcomers Bear's Den, all of which were handpicked by the band.
