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 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."
