“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.
