The surgery needed to fix a hole in Bret Michaels’ heart has been moved to January, Michaels’ publicist Jo Mignano says. The operation was originally scheduled for this fall.
Doctors discovered the hole earlier this year when Michaels was in the hospital recovering from a stroke. It’s been a rough year for the rocker, who survived an emergency appendectomy and a brain hemorrhage shortly before the warning stroke.
The former Poison frontman isn’t wasting time waiting for the surgery. He’s currently in the middle of his Roses & Thorns tour and his new VH1 show “Life As I Know It” premieres October 18.
"Is he 100 percent? No, but he's in good spirits, he's having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him," a rep for the rocker told RadarOnline.com.
