Bret Michaels -- I'm Having Trouble Moving My Legs

5/19/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bret Michaels just told Oprah Winfrey that he's still having trouble moving his lower extremities after his massive brain hemorrhage last month, but the rocker's mind -- especially his wit -- appear to be working just fine.

Bret Michaels
In his first televised interview since he was rushed to the emergency room -- with the odds of survival overwhelmingly stacked against him -- Bret told O that he's doing twice the rehab in order to expedite his recovery ... but he still suffers from headaches.

Michaels also cried a little bit during the show -- after Oprah ran an interview with Bret's 9-year-old daughter, in which she expressed how sad she was at the thought of life without her dad.  It's pretty emotional stuff.

The good news -- Bret seems like he's right on pace to go back on tour with his band May 28.

Take extra care! This could turn into a future disaster where we read about how he's in rehab for abusing pain killers.
Follow Dr.'s order and go slowly. God Bless!

Jeez, skip the tour. Relax and recover and spend more time with your family, you don't know what tomorrow brings. I hope he isn't going forward with the tour because he needs the money.

I hope he does well, it is the determination of music that has helped him. If he feels he needs to do the tour then so be it, it is that attitude that probably saved your life! Just take care and listen half way to the drs ;-).
