Comedian/actor Billy Connolly is recovering from another health crisis after undergoing surgery to remove gallstones.

The Scottish star was diagnosed with prostate cancer and Parkinson's disease last year (13), and he has now revealed he was recently hit with another medical problem after doctors discovered the source of his abdominal pain.

Connolly was found to have gallstones, and underwent a procedure to have them removed.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Last week I got stones in my gallbladder and that's a f**king hairy one. It is still very sore. It was hellish before the operation. I had this pain in my ribs the whole night."

Connolly previously underwent surgery as part of his treatment for prostate cancer, but is now recovering well.
