Bret Michaels -- My Appendix is Jacked Up

4/12/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0412_brett_michaels_BN_TMZBret Michaels was set to explode on stage at Sea World last night -- instead, his appendix almost burst.

The Poison frontman was rushed to the emergency room in San Antonio around 1:00 AM after he complained about severe stomach pains.

Once he got to the E.R., it was determined that Michaels was suffering from acute appendicitis. According to a rep for Michaels, the singer was treated -- and is beginning the recovery process.

No word if docs had to remove the appendix.

UPDATE: Bret's appendix was removed.

Of course they removed the appendix, the only way to cure appendicitis is surgery.

Don't you usually ALWAYS have the appendix removed for acute appendicitis?

wow that sucks. Hope he feels better soon. I felt so bad for him on Celebrity Apprentice last night getting the news his daughter might have diabetes like he does. Nothing is sadder then seeing a Dad cry. As a mom of a child with a seizure disorder I felt his pain.

Wonder if he put up a fight when they told him his wig would have to come off for surgery.

WTF is he doing advocating drinking (as he did in spades on his show) when he's representing Diabetes foundation and his young daughter prolly has it too.



I'm embarrased for him.

Namers, don't be so embarrassed for him...he actually takes excellent care of his health and manages his diabetes very well. The shows only show what they want you to see. No, diabetics should not drink regularly but they can drink on occassion. If a person gets Type 1 diabetes there is nothing you can do to stop it unlike type 2. He takes his health seriously, good luck to healing and hopefully his little girl does not have the same disease.

Anyone watching Celebrity Apprentice ? Bret is such a cry-baby, whimp on it. He crys at the drop of a hat. He is such an attention whore, when the rest of the cast aren't paying him any attention he starts crying with some drama in his life so the whole cast will pay attention to him.



DRAMA queen.
