Bret Michaels to Undergo Heart Surgery in the Fall

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bret Michaels will have heart surgery this fall, the rocker revealed to Access Hollywood on Monday.

The Celebrity Apprentice winner revealed that the recently discovered hole in his heart will be repaired after he is free and clear of the current medicines he’s on to keep his body functioning following his three recent major health scares including last month’s brain hemorrhage.

“What they’ll do is they’ll go in and they’ll do the heart operation in the fall,” Bret told Access. “They have to let everything clear out and then they’ll go in and do the operation in my heart and then I’m gonna be great. I don’t have any other options except to think that it’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be a smooth operation and I’m gonna feel awesome.”

Bret said he feels “amazing” presently, but back when he first was hit with a brain hemorrhage in late April, it was a much different story.
