Last week, on Thursday, Schwarzenegger underwent a complicated open-heart surgery. According to the star representative, Daniel Ketchell, Arnold was supposed to have an experimental surgery to replace a catheter valve. The procedure is considered to be minimum invasive.

However, something went wrong during the replacement, and doctors decided to have an open-heart surgery to avoid possible complications.


Today, the Terminator actor is in a stable condition. According to Ketchell, Arnold’s first words after awakening were “I am back.”


In fact, it was not the first time when Schwarzenegger had some health issues. When he was 50, the actor underwent a heart surgery in order to replace an aortic valve. At that time, Arnold commented on the matter:

I've never felt sick or had any symptoms at all, but I knew I'd have to take care of this condition sooner or later. I said to the doctors, ‘Let's do it now, while I'm young and healthy.’
