Danny Bonaduce underwent a pretty major procedure this past Monday, and he's speaking out in the aftermath.
Bonaduce received brain surgery this week for suspected hydrocephalus, a neurological disorder in which an excess of cerebrospinal fluid builds up in the brain. His wife, Amy, assured fans that everything had gone well late on Monday, tweeting, "It's been a long day but I just wanted to let you guys know that Danny's surgery went according to plan and he's doing well."
Yesterday, Bonaduce confirmed the good news, tweeting, "I lived, bitch."
The actor's agent, Paul Anderson, told TMZ that the surgery lasted about two hours and everyone is feeling "super optimistic" about his recovery. He's expected to remain in the hospital for a couple more days before heading home to rest for three to four weeks.
The Partridge Family alum revealed on June 2 that he was scheduled to undergo brain surgery on June 5 after a health scare earlier this year left him struggling with his balance. At the time, he also had difficulty speaking. While doctors ruled out a stroke, they didn't have a diagnosis.
After tentatively determining he was suffering from hydrocephalus—something he says took a hundred doctors to diagnose, and which may have been caused by his careless past, such as when he took a guitar to the head on a reality TV show, or when he was punched in the face by Jose Canseco—he was scheduled for surgery, which he hoped could help him feel up to "50 percent better right away."
According to TMZ, doctors are confident that the surgery will prove successful in helping Bonaduce maintain his balance and get around, though the actor has yet to address how he's feeling post-op.
Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!
