Bret scared his family when his blood pressure dropped & he became dehydrated, just days after massive heart surgery.

Just two days after heading home from the hospital, Bret Michaels was rushed back Jan. 28. “He had a set back,” Bret‘s sister Michele Sychak tells exclusively. “His blood pressure dipped dramatically.”

“With being a diabetic and the blood thinners and meds, he was also dehydrated,” Michele explains. “They got him some fluids and adjusted his meds. … After a trip to the ER, he is back home and fine.

This minor set back aside, Michele tells us “Bret is doing good” since Dr. Mansour Assar repaired his patent foramen ovale (PFO) on Jan. 24 at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz.

“He is in some pain, but is on the mend!” she says.
