SteelHeart frontman Miljenko Matijević recovering from recent surgery complications
SteelHeart lead vocalist Miljenko Matijević apparently had to deal with more issues than he anticipated as the singer suffered some complications during a recent surgery.
The following messages was posted in part on SteelHeart‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“A note from SteelHeart Management: Miljenko Matijević will be postponing some upcoming tour dates due to complications from a recent surgery. Following the surgery, doctors found a hole in his heart, known as a PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale). Much like those of Bret Michaels (Poison) and Hailey Baldwin-Bieber, the PFO caused a mini-stroke. The good news is that his physicians caught it in time, and his health and overall condition are improving steadily.
His team and fans alike are looking forward to a successful outcome of the upcoming procedure he is having to correct the problem. Until then, Miljenko will be taking things very slowly, with and abundance of caution and care.
Thank you for all of your kind words and well-wishes for Miljenko as he heals.
Note about PFO: One in four people have PFOs and may not even know until it’s too late. May was National Stroke Awareness Month – but you can still donate to the PFO Research Fund https://pfofoundation.org/ and get checked out by your doctor.”
