Bret has been to hell and back this past year after suffering a near fatal brain hemorrhage but he’s not in the clear just yet.

Bret Michaels is about to embark on yet another visit to the hospital, and this time it’s surgery to repair a hole in his heart. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Bret’s rep who reveals, “He’s looking forward to feeling 100%.”

Bret, 47, is expected to enter the hospital the third week of January, and he will be returning to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, specifically the Barrow Neurological Institute, the same place he was treated for his near-devastating brain hemorrhage in April.

“I gotta tell ya, I’m very positive,” he said recently. “I feel positive they’re going to do an amazing job. They’ve done thousands of these operations.”

Bret, who stars on his own VH1 reality show Life As I Know It, is working non-stop right up until his surgery. He also is in the middle of recording a new album.
