Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell says he's winning his cancer battle. 

The rocker says in a new Facebook post that after undergoing a number of tests and getting a second opinion, he can say his Hodgkin's Lymphoma, which he calls "Hodgies," is "officially in remission."  But he adds that he has some "bad news" to report as well.  With his health restored he says he no longer has "an excuse to not go to the gym." 

Campbell revealed his diagnosis back in June, two months after he'd started a six-month chemotherapy regimen.  He said he originally went to the doctor to address a persistent cough, which led to the discovery of the disease.
