Arnold Schwarzenegger surprised fans on Friday via Twitter with the announcement that he had a new aortic valve put in recently, on the heels of his pulmonary valve that was replaced two years ago.
The 73-year-old Terminator icon had undergone the procedure at the Cleveland Clinic and posted updates from his hospital bed to the streets of The Cle.
“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.” he wrote on Twitter. “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! “
Schwarzenegger had replaced a pulmonic valve originally installed in 1997 to correct a congenital defect. This time he reportedly took a little longer to recover from his March 2018 surgery.
