Symphony X Drummer Rehabs From Heart Failure

Symphony X Drummer Rehabs From Heart Failure

Two weeks ago, Symphony X drummer Jason Rullo was admitted to the hospital for heart failure. He was released following a week of medical care. His rehabilitation and recovery will take a minimum of three to six months under doctor supervision.

“I would just like to say that I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week,” Rullo released in an official statement. “We had a few scary days in there, but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it. Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery, so I plan to be back at 100 percent even if it takes a while. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I’ll know when it’s safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.”

Fans are encouraged to visit Symphony X’s Facebook and Twitter pages to send Jason their well wishes.
