Despite winning last season’s Celebrity Apprentice on NBC, Bret Michaels has had one heck of a year. After suffering from a brain hemorrhage and then a warning stroke, the rocker is now dealing with a hole in his heart and preparing to have heart surgery. Keep reading for more details!
NBC’s reigning Celebrity Apprentice champ and Poison front man, Bret Michaels has announced that he will be having surgery on his heart in January to fix a hole they found after his stroke earlier this year. His heart has been the latest of his health issues as doctors found it during his prior hospitalization and he is preparing to have heart surgery in January 2011. Despite his other health issues, the “Patent Forum Ovale” which is the hole in his heart apparently had nothing to do with the warning stroke or hemorrhage he suffered prior. Doctors say the condition is “operable and treatable.â€
Bret Michaels is is currently on his Roses and Thorns tour which will wrap up sometime in December. According to E! online Bret plans to take some time off before heading into surgery the next month. In a recent interview with RadarOnline, a rep for Bret Michaels stated â€œIs he 100 percent? No, but heâ€™s in good spirits, heâ€™s having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him. He said that there are times when, of course, he worries but he has great people around him and heâ€™s very cautious.â€
