Celebrity Apprentice contestant Bret Michaels had not been able to perform that night after he was rushed to the hospital. Reports say that Michaels was experiencing an excruciating headache and decided to head to the hospital. He underwent an emergency appendectomy last week.
“They told me that if I had gone onstage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died,” the rocker and Celebrity Apprentice contestant wrote on his blog.
Reports say that Bret Michaels’ recovery is doing well.
“When you’re not planning on having a body part ripped out of you, it can be a shock to the system,” he writes. “While the doctors are amazing in San Antonio, there is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts”, he further added.
