Symphony X Drummer Jason Rullo Hospitalised Due To Heart Scare!

Jason Rullo has been hospitalized over heart scare. The American drummer and one of the founding members of the Progressive metal band Symphony X was put in the hospital for a week under doctor’s care just earlier this month February 2013 as he had been suffering heart failure. At this time he is now facing a long recovery period.

A statement from the band reads,

Jason Rullo was admitted to the hospital for heart failure. Jason spent a week in the hospital… he has started a rehab program, and has been told that his recovery will take a minimum of 3-6 months under doctors’ care. We are all hopeful that J will be back soon!”

Rullo, 40, adds,

“I would just like to say that I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week. We had a few scary days in there, but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it.

“Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery, so I plan to be back at 100 per cent, even if it takes a while. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I’ll know when it’s safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.

“Thanks to my friends and family for the support, and to the fans, I love you all!”
