This past spring, rocker and Poison frontman Bret Michaels suffered a brain hemorrhage followed by a stroke, leaving many to question whether or not he would survive the ordeal. Nearly three months later, Michaels is out of the hospital gown and on tour once again, perhaps to the surprise of many who think such a rigorous lifestyle might not be wise for someone who just survived a life-threatening ordeal.
However, according to Dr. Ed Kornel, this might not be such a bad thing. ”You want to start utilizing that brain as much as possible so that it can start to reform connections that were lost,” Dr. Kornel told The New York Daily News. “Whenever there is a brain injury or stroke, you want to start cognitive rehab right away.”
Furthermore, Dr. Kornel surmises that in a few months, many of Michaels’ other ailments — memory loss, headaches — should subside.
