Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs is giving fans an update after going through treatment for tonsil cancer.

The former Oasis guitarist wrote a note on Twitter revealing he “finished my course of treatment, 30 radiotherapy sessions and two chemotherapy. I'm feeling the pain right now but I'm in recovery and things can only get better from here.”

He went on to thank the medical team that treated him, from doctors and radiologist to dieticians and speech therapists. "You all made it so much easier, I’ll forever look back at what you all do with a hand on my heart,” Bonehead wrote. "I'm back for a scan end of September to check all’s well, but for now it’s into recovery mode, couple of tough weeks ahead yet but I’ll get there.”
