Bret Michaels Still Hospitalized After Appendectomy

Posted on

Bret Michaels will remain in the hospital under the care of his doctors after undergoing emergency surgery to remove his appendix early Monday morning.

The 47-year-old former Poison frontman – and Celebrity Apprentice contestant – spiked a fever overnight, which could be a sign of an infection, his rep said in a statement.

Michaels, who’s currently on his Roses and Thorns tour, was rushed to a hospital in San Antonio Sunday after suffering from excruciating stomach pains originally thought to be symptoms of the stomach flu. A CT scan showed that his appendix was about to burst. Michaels, who is diabetic, had an emergency appendectomy at 1 a.m. Monday.
