Bret Michaels Wants You To Know He Almost Died!

We're glad he's okay, despite his dia-beet-us!

Bret Michaels is recovering from his emergency surgery for appendicitis, but he's relieved it was caught in time! Bret explains:

“I was throwing up all day and really thought I had just got a severe case of the flu. About 10 minutes before show time doctors got on the bus and said, ‘Bret we really don’t think this is the flu’ and told me that I WAS GOING TO THE HOSPITAL.

“After a CAT scan, they determined it was acute appendicitis and they performed emergency surgery right there in the middle of the night. After the fact, they told me that if I had gone onstage like I wanted to, it likely would have ruptured and I could have died. Not good.

Not good at all!

Lucky for Bret he's doing well and he reassures us all that, "yes there are hot nurses taking care of me." Ha! He will probably have to take extra care of himself though due to his diabetes. He says:

"I don't know how much longer I will be under medical supervision. I’ve spoken to several doctors and they all seem to be impressed with the condition I have been able to keep myself in as a juvenile diabetic.

"But a lot of extra care needs to be taken to make sure my body heals correctly… They say it can take four to six weeks to recover, but maybe longer for a diabetic.”

Get well soon, Bret!

    somebody needs to check bret out for a vagina. this guy is waaay too dramatic for our own good.



  2. 2

    Suck it up! Try being pregnant and having to have an emergency appendectomy.



  3. 3

    risk of mortality from appendicitis is quite low, but considering the juvenile diabetes i guess i'll allow him to think his risk of death was high due to his body's inability to withstand stress….

    (and they ALWAYS due the surgery immediately…so it wasn't because he had an especially severe case.)

    a little dramatic for appendicitis if you ask me…

    OMG! Bret is such a whinny baby! I had the same thing happen to me the day before he had surgery, acute appendicitis… you DON'T die if it bursts, my doctor told me he's had people's appendix burst, and being diabetic; they are put on antibiotics and returned a couple days later to remove the appendix. So if his appendix would have burst during a concert he would have been rushed to the ER had it removed and put on antibiotics.

    diabetic patients don't heal after surgery, it is very serious. The tissue cut open doesn't heal and developes GANGAGREEN and dies and then infection spreads and kills. He BETTER take it serious. I know a lady who was fine one minutes and dead after surgery the next. It's a good thing he is looking after himself geesh. Keep doin what ur doin Brett and i predict a blonde haired blued eyed man to win the apprentice.

    umm…yeah. When I was 17 I had to have emergency surgery because my appendix ruptured and when they went in to remove it they found that it was stuck to an ovarian cyst the size of a softball on my right ovary. So SHUT UP Brett Michaels! This happens to people every day! Stop begging for attention. Its pathetic

    BRET IS GREAT! HE IS SOO FULL OF HIMSELF, BUT HE SEEMS LIKE A GOOD HEARTED GUY. HES GREAT ON CELEBRITY APPRENTICE. GOOD FOR HIM. HES KEPT A CAREER GOING.

    Re: coqauvin – Well said. I'm a diabetic and doing fine. But, My cousin had surgery very minor and died from it. So yes it is serious anytime a diabetic is cut. They need more care and attention then the norm.
    Just sayin…
    Also Mario please don't start with the dia-beet-us word. This is a serious disease. And even you can get it. It tends to run in families. Look at the wealthy Casey Johnson that died. Also Nick Jonas has the kind as Bret. A lot of people have this thing. Mary Tyler Moore has it and that's when people started really taking a look at it. Get well Bret!



  9. 9

    Hmm, he didn't seem to worry too much about his health when he was fucking all those nasty sluts on his reality show…



  10. 10

    he cant die!!! we need another rock of love show!!



  11. 11

    wow, seriously? people have appendectomies all the time. suck it up.



  12. 12

    whiney, needy drama queen! i can only conclude that he wasn't breast fed as an infant, and now is making up for it with his ho-rrendous "dating" shows…



  13. 13

    why does anyone care about him he's so disgusting!!!



  14. 14

    I'll pull the plug and then maybe someone who deserves to live can be saved by his body parts (do you think he caught Hep C from Pam?)



  15. 15

    Who?



  16. 16

    I dunno what the diabetes does to ppl after an appendectomy, BUT i have had that op and many of my friends and NOBODY ever took 6 weeks to recover. In fact, they had me up and walking around about 8 hours after the surgery (they force you- it's good for you despite pain I guess). Soreness for maybe 10 days then back to normal. Regardless, I am glad he's okay. All operations are potentially very serious. Get fully well, my libidinous friend!



  17. 17
