Bret, we’re glad you’re feeling better — but docs STILL say it’s too soon for you to be pushing yourself so hard!
Fresh off his Celebrity Apprentice win and surprise performance on the American Idol finale, Bret Michaels, 47, put on a huge concert May 28 for more than 1,400 fans at Mississippi’s Hard Rock Casino. And while he told concert goers that “it’s an awesome feeling” to be back on stage, we have to express our concerns. Bret, doctors tell us you’re doing too much too soon, considering the hole in your heart and the brain hemorrhage you suffered last month.
“I’ve got a little bitty hitch in my left giddy up, but I think we’ll be all right,” Bret said during his concert, which was being filmed for his new VH1 reality series titled Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.
But it’s more than just a “little bitty hitch,” according to the doctors who spoke with HollywoodLife.com.
“I would be certainly very leery about [him performing already],” says Dr. John Osborne MD PHD, a Dallas-based cardiologist from State of the Heart Cardiology. “I’m shocked that he can even be out of the hospital; he was INCREDIBLY fortunate. Usually when this happens, risk of death is 80 percent. He just needs to be very careful.”
Bret, we know you have a new lease on life… but PLEASE be careful! Maybe take a break for a while and spend some time with your kids.
