Bret Michaels may still be trucking along despite his recent health problems, but he's far from 100%.
Janna Elias, V.P. of Michaels Entertainment said in a statement today, "While Bret may be out on the road and performing, he is still not 100 percent. He still has pain from the chemical meningitis, short term memory loss and gets fatigued quicker than normal."
So why does Michaels seem to be pushing himself to the limit? He "simply feels that music is a powerful healer," explained Elias.
Dr. Joseph Zabramski of the Barrow Neurological Institute added that Michaels' is lucky to be alive after his brain hemorrhage and stroke. "Between 15 and 20 percent of patients die as a result of the initial hemorrhage, and only approximately 50 percent of those that survive have a good outcome," he said.
"For anyone to speculate that this was not a life threatening medical emergency is absolutely incorrect," added Zabramski. "Bret is truly one of the most determined individuals I have ever met when it comes to an attempt at making a full recovery."
