Veteran Hollywood action hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed in a Twitter post that he had a second heart surgery to replace his aortic valve.
The Terminator actor, 73, shared the news on social media on Friday, October 23.
In his post, the former California governor said the procedure was done at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and that he is already up and walking about the streets of Cleveland.
‘Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic; I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery.
I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues. Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team!’
The former California governor first underwent heart surgery in 1997, to replace his original pulmonic valve due to a congenital heart defect.
In recent months, Schwarzenegger has been finding creative ways to inform his fans about how to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In March, he released enlisted his donkey, Lulu, and mini pony, Whiskey, to talk about the importance of self-isolating to prevent spreading the virus, and documented a biking trip while wearing a mask emblazoned with one of his famous catchphrases.
“We’ll be back. We will get through this together,” Schwarzenegger wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
Equally important, Arnold Schwarzenegger is full of praise for a vegan diet; and the former bodybuilding champ is now almost entirely powered by plants.
Schwarzenegger has revealed he’s now ditched meat and dairy in favour of Beyond Meat and almond milk; while egg is the only non-vegan ingredient he still consumes.
