Christy Dignam has opened up about life in isolation, revealing he’s finding it incredibly tough being away from his family.
The Aslan frontman has to take serious precautions amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, as he is considered a high-risk patient due to his cancer diagnosis.
Speaking to Ray D’Arcy he said, “I haven’t seen my grandkids in three weeks and they’re the light of my life and they keep me going.
“Everyone’s in the same boat – we’ve never seen anything like this, this is unprecedented.”
Christy says that his treatment has been affected by the pandemic as the specific scan he requires is only available in London and he can no longer fly there.
The singer was due to go to the UK on the 30th of March for a scan as his ‘bloods have been dodgy’ for the past few months but that is ‘all up in the air’ now with the ongoing crisis.
He singer said, “Usually, [the cancer] attacks my kidney, liver and my heart.
“When my kidneys are being attacked I start retaining fluids and my hands swell up and my breathing doesn’t be as good as it should be, so I’ve been noticing signs like that.”
