He did not experience any after-effects or paralysis after the surgery. Fukuyama added that he will continue to rest until July 8, and plans to return to touring with the band JAM Project starting in September.
Three Nine Entertainment had announced on Fukuyma's website on June 11 that he would be putting his work on hold "for the time being" due to his poor health.
