The DJ receives a host of well-wishes from fans after being hospitalized this weekend.

Avicii has told fans he's on "the road to recovery" after his gallbladder and appendix were both removed this weekend.

The Swedish star was forced to cancel an appearance at the Ultra Live Festival in Miami and was rushed to hospital after falling ill in the week.

He tweeted about the incident and thanked fans for their continued support during a difficult time.

"My fans know that I have had issues in the past with my stomach and pancreatitis," he wrote. "I woke up on Wednesday morning with serious pain but I flew to Miami anyway, hoping that it would go away. The pain was still there when I landed so I went straight to hospital. I was treated and left later that night.

"Unfortunately, the pain came back and I returned to the hospital where they admitted me to stay overnight."

After sharing a picture from his hospital bed, he added: "Turns out i had a ruptured appendix on top of my sick gallbladder…both were removed during the operation."

Calvin Harris and Tiesto were among his DJ friends to offer their well wishes as he starts his recovery.

Meanwhile, Avicii's pal Aloe Blacc was named the new Vodafone Big Top 40 number one this weekend with his latest song 'The Man'. The pair scored their own success last year with the anthem 'Wake Me Up'.
