Reality TV and rock star Bret Michaels was released from the hospital Tuesday, less than three weeks after he suffered a potentially deadly bleed at the base of his brain stem.

At a press conference, doctors said Michaels can walk and talk but is not yet fully recovered and will continue to receive care outside the hospital, ABC News reported.

He was treated at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.

"It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition," Dr. Joseph Zabramski, who led the treatment team, said at the press conference.

He added that Michaels should wait at least four to six weeks before resuming normal activity, ABC News reported.
