BRET MICHAELS was taken back into hospital earlier this week following a minor stroke and medics discovered he has a small hole in his heart.
BRET MICHAELS has been rushed back into hospital.
The Poison frontman - who suffered from a brain haemorrhage just weeks ago - has been readmitted to a medical centre after having a minor stroke.
A statement on his website revealed Bret had fallen ill with the "warning stroke" - also known as a Transient Ischemic Attack - and took himself to hospital after suffering numbness on the left side of his body, face and hands.
During his stay, MRI tests and CT scans were conducted and medics discovered the 47-year-old rocker had a small hole in his heart, called a Patent Foramen Ovale.
Bret's neurosurgeon Dr. Zabramski said: "There is No Doubt that the positive Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) is devastating news to Bret and his family. The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the Transient Ischemic Attach (TIA) or warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain haemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier.
"I realise Bret wants to make a full recovery so that he can be active with his family, attempt to attend the finale of Celebrity Apprentice and especially get back on the road to continue making music. Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100 per cent recovery."
