Listen to The Wanted on iHeartRadio

The Wanted's Nathan Sykes is opening up his recent vocal surgery, now that he's on his way to a full recovery and returned to the group.  In an interview with "Entertainmentwise," the singer said the weeks before his April surgery were a scary time and that he "kind of had a bit of a panic attack" just before being put under the anesthesia. 

The 20-year-old said that he remembers feeling that his career was in the hands of his doctors.  Fortunately, he returned to his duties as the fifth and youngest member of the Wanted earlier this month, joining them onstage at London's Wembley Stadium for the Summertime Ball Festival. 

The group's reality show "The Wanted Life" airs Sundays on E!
