Bret Michaels Hospitalized After Emergency Appendectomy

Moments before he was due to perform in San Antonio, Bret Michaels was rushed to the hospital with what he thought was a severe case of stomach pains and the flu.

Turns out the current 'Celebrity Apprentice' star had acute appendicitis and underwent an emergency appendectomy at 1 AM Monday morning.

"He remains in the hospital, is doing well and beginning the recovery progress," the former Poison frontman's publicist says in a statement.

"Michaels, who has been known to perform under extreme conditions that would make most performers cancel, will unfortunately have no choice but to reschedule some of his April tour dates."

Michaels, a diabetic, is no stranger to medical issues. He gives himself insulin shots and checks his blood sugar four to six times a day.

He also suffered a broken nose when he was hit by a falling set piece during his a performance at the 2009 Tony Awards.
