Following the diagnosis of hydrocephalus, which is a neurological condition that is caused by an accumulation of fluid in the brain, Danny Bonaduce had successful brain surgery. A friend of the actor named Paul Anderson revealed to TMZ that Bonaduce had a treatment on Monday that lasted for two hours.
Bonaduce had brain surgery in which a shunt was implanted in his skull to drain the extra fluid in an attempt to alleviate the symptoms he was experiencing as a result of his condition. The objective was to assist him in keeping his balance while also contributing to his day-to-day mobility.
Amy, the actor’s wife, rushed to Twitter to provide an update on her husband’s condition and let fans know that his operation had been successful and that he was recovering well. She said, “It’s been a long day but I just wanted to let you guys know that Danny’s surgery went according to plan and that he’s doing well.”
Bonaduce is currently resting in the hospital after the successful outcome of the surgery; nevertheless, it is anticipated that he will be discharged within the next couple of days. According to the site, his rehabilitation time at home is anticipated to be anywhere between three and four weeks.
Following his rehabilitation, Bonaduce has expressed optimism that he would be able to resume anchoring The Danny Bonaduce & Sarah Morning Show, a radio program headquartered in Seattle.
The actor, who is 63 years old and originally went public with his mysterious ailment more than a year ago, said earlier this month that he now had a probable diagnosis of hydrocephalus and intended to have brain surgery. He also stated that he had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus.
Bonaduce said that he eventually received a diagnosis for his symptoms, which was hydrocephalus, after “nobody could figure out” what was causing his slurred speech and difficulty with balance.
According to the Mayo Clinic, hydrocephalus is the accumulation of fluid in the cavities deep inside the brain, which may cause damage to brain structures and a variety of difficulties with how the brain functions. It is most common in babies and individuals aged 60 and older.
The star of the Partridge Family told the publication on June 2 that “currently, it looks like that’s what I was having,” adding that he “can’t figure out what caused it, because I’ve done so many stupid things.”
“On a reality television program, I was hit in the head with a guitar. It was painful, and it’s possible that it was the root of all of this. “I got punched in the face by Jose Canseco, who weighs 250 pounds,” Bonaduce guessed. Canseco was a professional athlete. According to the Mayo Clinic, a traumatic brain injury is one of the probable causes of hydrocephalus.
“From what I hear, if the diagnosis is correct and it’s hydrocephalus, it will be 50 percent better right out of surgery,” he added, before explaining why he doesn’t “want to get my hopes up too much that I’ll be cured.” “From what I hear, if the diagnosis is correct and it’s hydrocephalus, it will be 50 percent better right out,” he said.
“Unfortunately, at this very moment… “If it turns out that this doesn’t work, I’m going to be totally devastated,” he acknowledged. “I’m having trouble walking properly. I simply can’t. A ten percent improvement would be fantastic, but I’m pushing for a complete overhaul… “I’m never going to run track again, and I’m never going to box again, but if I can get from here to the kitchen on my own, I’ll consider that a victory!”
In June of last year, when making an appearance on Good Morning America, Bonaduce said that his wife Amy Railsback was the one who first recognized thing was awry with his speech. In the end, an ambulance transported him to the hospital, where he remained for a period of five days.
“I was unable to walk. I was unable to maintain my equilibrium. I had a terrible slurring problem,” he recounted. “I feared everything there was to fear. “For the love of God, I had a fear of my stairs; however, I was unable to obtain a diagnosis for my condition.”
As a result of the medical incident, Bonaduce was forced to temporarily suspend his radio program in Seattle. However, he was able to come back on the airways a few months later after having a studio installed in his house.
