Poison rocker Bret Michaels is reportedly out of the hospital but not out of the woods health-wise following his emergency appendectomy.

Michaels was reportedly discharged from a Texas hospital on Wednesday and is recuperating at a facility that specializes in rehabilitating diabetic patients, says

"While the surgery went well and doctors are optimistic that the rocker will make a full recovery, the fact that he was exhausted due to his rigorous schedule prior to the surgery and coupled with the fact that he has diabetes, the surgery has taken its toll," Michaels' rep says in a statement to the site.

"Even for non-diabetic patients the recovery from surgery can be long and painful," the statement continues. "Doctors were amazed at how good of health Bret was in being a 47-year-old diabetic. However the main focus and concern right now is that he is able to rest, recover and maintain good blood sugar levels while doing so."
