Danny Bonaduce to Undergo Surgery for Mystery Illness

Actor and radio host Danny Bonaduce recently revealed that he will be undergoing brain surgery in order to treat a neurological disorder. The diagnosis came after months of searching for answers to his mysterious health issues.

Bonaduce, best known for his role as Danny Partridge on the 1970s sitcom “The Partridge Family”, first began experiencing symptoms of his condition in late 2020. He visited over 100 doctors before finally receiving a diagnosis of hydrocephalus, a neurological disorder caused by an accumulation of fluid in the brain.

In an interview with People magazine, Bonaduce said that he was relieved to finally have an answer but also scared about the upcoming surgery. “I’m scared but I’m also grateful because I know what it is now and I can do something about it,” he said. “It’s like being blindfolded and then having someone take off the blindfold and you can see again. It’s a relief but it’s also scary because you don’t know what you’re going to see when they take off the blindfold. That’s kind of how this feels right now.”

The surgery is scheduled for next week and will involve inserting a shunt into Bonaduce’s brain in order to drain excess fluid from his skull. While there are risks involved with any surgery, Bonaduce is optimistic about the outcome and hopeful that it will help him regain some mobility which has been affected by the disorder.

Bonaduce has been sharing updates on social media throughout his journey and thanked fans for their support during this difficult time. He said: “I just want to thank everyone who has sent me well wishes or prayers or whatever kind words they may have had for me during this time…It really means a lot to me and it helps more than people realize.”
