Bret Michaels is suffering short-term memory loss following his near-fatal brain hemorrhage and subsequent stroke earlier this year.

The Poison star has endured a number of health scares in recent months – as well as the hemorrhage and stroke, he’s also undergone an emergency appendectomy and was diagnosed with a hole in his heart.

During a concert in Mississippi last month, Michaels was seen walking with a slight limp, and he’s also suffering tiredness, memory problems, and “chemical meningitis” – a rare side effect of body scans.

Michaels’ road manager, Janna Elias, tells People.com, “He still has pain from the chemical meningitis, short-term memory loss and gets fatigued quicker than normal.”
