Singer and songwriter Brooke Fraser has had surgery to repair nerve damage caused when she put a knife through her hand cutting an avocado. Fraser confirmed that the severed nerve had been repaired, so the injury would not prevent her from playing music.
Writiing on social media, Fraser reveals: "For everyone who's been asking, I was cutting an avocado a few days ago when the knife slipped and kinda sorta went through my hand. Had successful surgery today to repair the nerve I severed so I WILL be able to play music again! The surgical team were BOSSES. To all my friends who texted, sent flowers, prayed - THANK YOU."
