Bret Michaels Health Condition

Bret Michaels released a statement revealing he will be undergoing two surgeries this week. One procedure will address an injury caused to his rotator cuff and the other is regarding cancerous growth.

Rocker Michaels is notorious for being on the road and confessed the recent news will affect his schedule at the beginning of the year. He will play a “few less solos shows and special events” while he takes time to focus on his health.

Bret Michaels Health Statement

“After a very recent kickoff to the new year, physical & MRI it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder. A little more complex I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I’m in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes. It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up. As always continuing great diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020! – Bret Michaels”

Michaels already survived one of his most difficult health years in 2010 when he faced a brain hemorrhage, an emergency appendectomy, and heart surgery. We are wishing the best for Michaels during this time and hope for a speedy recovery.
