The procedure will happen Monday (January 24). Poison frontman Bret Michaels will go under the knife for a surgery to repair a hole in his heart. It is a condition he’s had since birth, but only discovered last year, after nearly dying from a brain hemorrhage.
A report on The Arizona Republic’s Web site says that physicians at Barrow and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center directed Michaels to continue follow-up treatment for his April 2010 hemorrhage before moving ahead with surgery to repair his broken heart.
“I’ve done a lot of neurological tests, and they say I’m about 95 percent there,” said Michaels. “I still have a little ‘funk’ with my left hand that I haven’t quite figured out, but I think with a little more therapy, by one full year (after the hemorrhage), I’ll be as good as I’m going to get.”
He then said: “Barring any complications, I should be out within three to four days. Then, I will be down (resting) for three weeks. I don’t know if I can sit around for that long, but I’ll try my best.”
We’re sure you’ll be fine, but get better soon, Bret. And good luck. Seriously.
