In September, Rian van Heerden suffered from severe pain after a kidney stone was discovered. 

Van Heerden went into hospital to remove a kidney stone.

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, Van Heerden was screened, tested, and put into isolation before being admitted to the hospital as part of their COVID-19 procedures. Unfortunately, he tested positive for the virus.

In October, after recovering from COVID-19, Van Heerden was scheduled (Friday) for another operation to remove the kidney stone.

On Monday, Van Heerden contacted Dean Paulse to inform him that he is doing "fine".

"I'm fine now," Van Heerden said.

"Stone is out. The stent has just been removed. I'm fighting fit again!" Van Heerden continued. 

Rian van Heerden will be back in studio on Tuesday.
