NEWS: Leslie West has amputation surgery

Sending my thoughts to Leslie West, who just had part of his leg amputated due to complications from diabetes.

According to “West had flown in to Mississippi to perform at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino with his band Mountain. On Saturday, his leg began to swell, and as a diabetic he was rushed to the emergency room. It was decided that an amputation was required in order to save his life. Surgery was a success and the procedure removed his limb up to the knee.

West is expected to fully recover and faces extensive rehabilitation.”
