One day after he was looking healthy and on his way to recovery on the Oprah Winfrey Show, news comes that Poison front man Bret Michaels was rushed back to the hospital this week, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
Bret was suffering from numbness on the left side of his body, mostly on his face and hands which his doctors described as Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or a warning stroke.
His doctor said that Bret is “very determined to get healthy and make a 100% recovery,” and is being treated with outpatient care.
Dr. Joseph Zabramski spoke about the singer’s future, “Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100% yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.” He continued “There is no doubt that the positive Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) is devastating news to Bret and his family. The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the Transient Ischemic Attach (TIA) or warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain hemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier. Once again it is great that he quickly reacted to the severe numbness and got to the hospital immediately.”
Bret’s rep released a statement on the singer’s Facebook page stressing his devotion to his fans and reminding them why he is a rock star. “Bret wants everyone to know he cannot thank you enough for all of the well wishes, prayers, and good vibes you have sent his way. Even though these last few months have been tough on him and his family, especially this most recent setback, he is in good spirits, great medical hands and is positive and hopeful that everything is going to be OK. He is up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive but he has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again.”
Bret is hoping to appear on the live Celebrity Apprentice finale Sunday night.
