Eddie Van Halen was reportedly hospitalized recently due to issues with his throat cancer treatment.

TMZ reports that sources close to EVH say he was in the hospital last week for “intestinal issues and abdominal pain” that “were the result of a bad reaction to the drugs Eddie is taking to battle throat cancer.”

The good news is that Van Halen has been discharged from the hospital and “doing fine now.”

TMZ reported last month that EVH has been flying between the United States and Germany for throat cancer treatment and has apparently been doing so under the radar for years to help keep his cancer in remission.
