Poison rocker Bret Michaels out of hospital after suffering ‘warning stroke’

POISON frontman Bret Michaels has been released from hospital after suffering a “warning stroke” yesterday.

OK! Magazine reported Michaels, 47, was apparently suffering numbness on the left side of his body yesterday and went to get checked out.

After a series of tests, doctors concluded that Michaels had suffered a transient ischemic attack, or a warning stroke.

During testing, doctors also found a patent forum ovale, commonly known as a hole in the heart.

Michaels previously said he would attend the Sunday finale of Celebrity Apprentice and his rep told E! News that he will indeed appear as planned on this weekend’s live finale

Micahels will continue to receive outpatient care, according to his doctor.

“I realise Bret wants to make a full recovery so that he can be active with his family, attempt to attend the finale of Celebrity Apprentice and especially get back on the road to continue making music,” Dr Zabramski of St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Barrow Neurological Institute wrote.

“Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100% recovery.

“Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100% yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.”

Michaels has been fighting illness since he was admitted to hospital with a brain haemorrhage on April 21.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine he admitted he was channel surfing between porn movie Busty Cops 3 and sports when he was hit with the life-threatening haemorrhage and spent two weeks in an Arizona hospital.

“I was going back and forth from SportsCenter to Busty Cops 3,” Michaels, 47, said.

Micahels is competing on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice for the title and a $US250,000 prize for his charity, the American Diabetes Association.

He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a child.

He was also expected to return to the stage with a show on May 28 at the Hard Rock in Biloxi, Mississippi, followed by a tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd kicking off June 10 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
