Danny Bonaduce has to undergo brain surgery after health problems

Former actor-turned-radio host Danny Bonaduce is taking a leave of absence from his show due to health concerns. Bonaduce announced that he will undergo brain surgery due to a current health crisis.

What type of surgery will Danny Bonaduce undergo?

In a recent post on Instagram, Bonaduce said he was taking a “temporary medical leave” from his radio show. Bonaduce said he would share as much as possible, but in an interview with TMZrevealed the surgery was an attempt to recover from a mysterious illness.

In the interview, Bonaduce recently had trouble walking and spent his days speaking to “hundreds” of doctors to find out what the problem was.

“My life consisted of talking to doctors. I had meetings with five doctors in a single day and no one could figure out what it was,” Bonaduce said. “And I was like, ‘Well, that’s a big deal. I’m falling now This can’t be good.’”

Eventually, Bonaduce said, one doctor concluded it could be hydrocephalus. This is a neurological disorder caused by fluid buildup in the brain. Bonaduce joked that while recounting some of his past antics, he had no idea how he got into it.

“I got hit in the head with a guitar on a reality TV show. That hurt and was possibly the cause of all of this. I got punched in the face by Jose Canseco, a 250-pound professional athlete,” Bonaduce said, before joking that the punch didn’t knock him out.

Bonaduce added that he will soon be undergoing brain surgery. Doctors will use a shunt to drain some of the excess fluid from his brain. From what he’s been told and if the hydrocephalus diagnosis is correct, he would have about a 50% chance of getting better straight after the surgery.

“From what I’ve heard, if diagnosed correctly and hydrocephalus will be 50 percent better right after surgery,” Bonaduce said, noting that he “don’t want to get my hopes up too high that I’ll be cured.” “

“Sorry right now, and I don’t want to be a victim, but I’ll be absolutely devastated if this doesn’t work out,” Bonaduce said. “I can’t walk properly. I just can not. Ten percent would be great, but I’m aiming for a complete solution… I’ll never run track and field again, I’ll never box again, but if I can get from here to the kitchen by myself, bravo!”
