Rocker and reality star Bret Michaels has been released from a hospital in San Antonio, Texas after an emergency appendectomy, RadarOnlnie.com has confirmed.
The former front-man for Poison has been transferred to an undisclosed private care facility specializing in rehabilitation of diabetic patients.
His publicist, Joann Migano, tells RadarOnline.com “While the surgery went well and doctors are optimistic that the rocker will make a full recovery, the fact that he was exhausted due to his rigorous schedule prior to the surgery and coupled with the fact that he has diabetes, the surgery has taken its toll.
“Even for non diabetic patients the recovery from surgery can be long and painful,” she said. “Doctors were amazed at how good of health Bret was in being a 47-year-old diabetic. However the main focus and concern right now is that he is able to rest, recover and maintain good blood sugar levels while doing so.”
Michaels was about to perform at Sea World in Texas on Sunday night when he was rushed to the hospital complaining of stomach pains. Michaels is on his Roses and Thorns Tour, which is set to visit more than 200 cities.
The rep says it’s not known how long Michaels will be out, but all concert dates through April 24 are being rescheduled.
