He was enjoying a holiday with his daughter and grandson but was unable to fly back home on Friday January 25..
Mr Rigby is now waiting to receive a bill for his medical treatment in Spain, which he believes to be in the region of £13,000.
He said: "I came home and I was okay for a few days but I have had to go back into hospital again because I have a problem with my back.
"I don't mind, I am just glad I am not over there."
Mr Rigby, whose insurance company will not fund the bill, added: "I don't know how much it will cost me now, I am just glad to be home."
