Poison frontman Bret Michaels has been released from a Phoenix hospital and is expected to make a full recovery after suffering a brain hemorrhage last month. The lead doctor treating Michaels said Tuesday that he recommends Michaels wait at least four to six weeks before resuming normal activity.

Dr. Joseph Zabramski of the Barrow Neurological Institute wouldn't say when Michaels was released or whether he was sent home or to a rehabilitation facility. Zabramski says the 47-year-old contestant on "The Celebrity Apprentice" is receiving therapy and continues to suffer as blood pooled under his brain dissolves.

Two tests showed that Michaels did not suffer an aneurism, so doctors are unsure what caused his hemorrhage.
