Less than two weeks after suffering a major brain hemorrhage, Bret Michaels, star ofÂ NBC‘sÂ Celebrity Apprentice, has been released from the hospital. Despite the fact that his doctor says he’s “still very sick right now,” Michaels is expected to make a full recovery. Keep reading for the latest update on his health scare and road to recovery…
Medically, Bret Michaels has had a rough month. First, theÂ Celebrity Apprentice competitor underwent emergency appendectomy surgery on April 12th and then, less than a week later, he was admitted into the hospital with a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage in his brain. Fortunately, things are looking up for the rock star who has recently been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
“Mr. Michaels was indeed a lucky person, a very lucky person,” Dr. Joseph Zabramski, a neurosurgeon at Phoenix’s St. Joseph’s hospital, said.Â ”He’s improving. I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery. He’s just one of those lucky people â€“ 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities.” Dr. Zabramski says that he and his team will continue to “closely monitor” Michaels over the coming weeks.
Regarding theÂ Celebrity Apprentice competitor’s outlook, Dr. Zabramski said, “He’s still very sick right now [but] he’s a very determined person. His level of consciousness [has] returned to what we call normal.” Over the weekend, Zabramski also said thatÂ ”Bret’s sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable.”
Apparently, his determination and fight has paid off. Sometime today, Michaels checked out of the hospital and is in stable condition. He will be undergoing physical therapy for several weeks or months, but the doctors are confident he will make a complete recovery. Dr. Zabramski also adds,Â ”We’re pretty confident he does not have an aneurysm or other problems with his blood vessels that could result in a recurrent hemorrhage.”
