Danny Bonaduce will go under the knife

Danny Bonaduce recently sat down for an interview with TMZ where he revealed that is going to have brain surgery on Monday.

In addition, he said that he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus in March after seeing multiple doctors for a mystery illness.

For the unversed, hydrocephalus is a neurological disorder that occurs due to a buildup of fluid in the brain.

Subsequently, Bonaduce said that the doctors will use a shunt during the surgery to drain the liquid from his brain.

Besides that, as per an article on CelebrityNetWorth, Bonaduce’s net worth is estimated to be nearly $5 million in 2022.

If you didn’t know, Bonaduce has been co-hosting ‘The Danny Bonaduce & Sarah Morning Show’ since 2011. It airs on Seattle radio station KZOK.

Danny Bonaduce opens up about his mystery illness

Danny Bonaduce began battling with the mystery illness after his wife Amy Railsback noticed something was off with his speech last year in April.

Furthermore, he got candid about his illness two months later during an episode of Good Morning America which aired on the 27th of June.

He said, ‘She looked really nervous. And she said, “You’re not saying words, you’re not speaking English,” which of course is preposterous to me.’

Subsequently, he recalled, ‘We called an ambulance and took me to the hospital, where I remained for the first five days and remembered very little of it.’

The 63-year-old host said that time, ‘I’d seen my dad have a stroke and it was the same thing.’

He shared, ‘I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t keep my balance. I slurred really badly. I couldn’t remember anything.’

Bonaduce revealed, ‘I was hoping for a diagnosis, but did not get one.’

Meanwhile, The Partridge Family actor tweeted earlier in 2022 that he is taking a break from his career.

He wrote, ‘Some news to share. I’m taking a temporary medical leave from my radio show.’

He added, ‘I’ll share more when I know more. I’m still working towards receiving a diagnosis. What I know is, I need time to focus on my health. I love my job and talking to you guys & I’ll be back on the air soon.’
