Hong Kong actor Andy Lau has gone home, after a 53-day stay in hospital. He had been injured due to a horse-riding accident, while filming a commercial in January in Thailand.

The 55-year-old superstar who suffered pelvis fractures announced on Mar. 10 via a blog post on his official fan site, that he has been discharged from Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital.

Using his famous nickname “Wah Zai”, he said in the Chinese post titled “I’ve Gone Home”, that the doctor had approved his return home after an entire day of medical tests the previous day.

Lau is hugely popular in Asia with a career spanning nearly 30 years as a singer, actor and producer. He is also widely known as one of the “Four Heavenly Kings” of Cantopop.

He assured his fans that he was well on his way to recovery.

Here his translated blog post in full:

Underwent an entire day of medical tests!
The results were out in the evening…
I was in the ward,
seated in my wheelchair quietly
listening to the docter’s comments calmly
The docter went on and on
I didn’t register a thing till
he said:
“You can go home now!”

I almost jumped up to hug the docter
Unfortunately it was beyond me……

My dear family
My pelvic fractures are healing well
Vertebral spine fracture, sciatic nerve system
Muscles and Achilles tendon are also slowly recovering.
The skies are clearing up! Please don’t worry…..

In this home
I hope my family and me
Thank all friends in the media
During this period of time
Who allow me to have sufficient space to recover
As for the support in the media
I can see it and feel it

The words left for me at home
I read them once every day
All the blessings
Every word of encouragement
They are my best medicine

Believe me!!
I will be able to stand on my feet very soon!
