La Sombra de Tony Guerrero is planning a return to the stage after the Tejano R.O.O.T.S. Hall of Famer announced he is healthy after battling an infection for months.


The singer took himself to the emergency room on June 14 after abdominal pain became unbearable. He had developed an infection after a routine hernia operation in February. Guerrero was hospitalized in March after receiving surgery for hernia complications and intestinal problems. He has suffered from intestinal problems since 2007, according to a recent interview.

He posted a social media video on Wednesday to update fans after his recent visit with doctors.

“I am feeling pretty good,” Guerrero said in the video. “They took the tube out, and my wounds, I don’t have to put dressings on them anymore. They closed up and I’m very happy about that.”

He added fans can expect La Sombra back on stage on Oct. 12 at R&R Cantina in Pasadena, Texas, featuring an appearance by young accordionist Christopher Ramirez.
