A press conference on Brett Michaels, former Poison front man, was held Tuesday, documenting his physical stability. Doctors announced that Michaels had been released from hospital after being successfully treated for a brain hemorrhage he suffered last week.

Michaels' medical team reported at the press conference at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center that his current condition was stable and the star had been released with a good outlook for his future, and is expected to make a full recovery.

"He's walking. He's not walking very well. He's talking very well, and he's very mentally aware. He'll fortunately make a 100 percent recovery,” Dr. Joseph M. Zabramski told VH1.

Media across the nation was buzzing about Michaels after he suffered what is known as a “thunderclap headache.” The headache was the result of internal bleeding in his head between the thin later of tissue surrounding the brain and the subarachnoid cavity of the brain.

Doctors performed three angiograms before confirming that Michaels was not suffering from an aneurysm before he was given medical clearance to leave the hospital. Michaels has been taken to another undisclosed location and is scheduled for another angiogram in two weeks.

Zabramski also reported that more than fifteen percent of patients who suffer from subarachnoid hemorrhages die before making it to a hospital. Another twenty percent suffer minor to severe brain damage, reported VHI.

Bret Michaels is known for his work with 80’s pop-rock band Poison as a singer and songwriter. Michaels is also recognized for work as an actor, as well as a television personality. Michaels has lived with diabetes his whole life; it is unclear how this will relate to his brain injury.
