What happened to Danny Bonaduce and why did he undergo a brain surgery?
Last week, Danny shared with the media outlet TMZ that he was undergoing brain surgery after being diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a neurological disorder that results in fluid in the brain.
At that point in time, the radio host told the media outlet, “My life was talking to doctors. I had meetings with five doctors on one single day, and nobody could figure out what it was.”
He went on to say, “And I thought, ‘Well, this is a big deal. I’m falling down now. That can’t be good.’” He also stated that he had met with “100 doctors” before one eventually diagnosed him with hydrocephalus. Up until now, he’s not aware of how the illness started.
Bonaduce further added, “I can’t figure out what caused it, ’cause I’ve done so many stupid things on reality TV shows. I took a guitar to the head. That hurt, and was possibly the cause of all this. I got punched in the face by José Canseco, a 265-lb. professional athlete. And by the way, I didn’t hit the floor.”
During the brain surgery, Danny was set to have a stent and a drainage port placed in his brain. He continued, “From what I hear, if the diagnosis is correct, it’ll be 50 percent better right [away]. But I’d rather be safe than sorry. I don’t wanna get my hopes up too much that I’ll be cured … I will be completely bummed out if this doesn’t work. I can’t walk currently, I just can’t.”
Bonaduce even mentioned that his end goal is not to get his mobility back but rather to make daily routines more manageable. He said, “I’m never gonna run track. I’m never gonna box again. But if I can get from here to the kitchen on my own, bravo.”

He further added, “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.” After the big announcement, he put up a cheeky post that read, “Charlie Chaplin, Willy Wonka, Danny Bonaduce. I’ve joined the club of cool guys with canes.”
