Famous Actor Reveals Medical Scare

(DailyEmailNews.com) – Considering that life is a battlefield, and health is an important issue to be taken care of, famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he just had pacemaker surgery due to a congenital heart defect.

“I have some personal news to share. Last Monday, I had surgery for a pacemaker and became a little bit more of a machine,” he stated on his podcast “Arnold’s Pump Club.”

The former California governor shared his story despite the different cultural norms he experienced growing up in Austria, where discussing health issues is not common.

“Everything related to healthcare was kept to yourself. But I’ve gotten so many messages and emails from people who were born with a bicuspid aortic valve, like me, telling me that talking about my valve replacement surgeries has given them courage and hope to deal with their own,” he said.

He kept the conversation saying, “I have to tell you, just saying this to all of you goes against so much of my upbringing in Austria, where nobody ever talked about medical issues. So, since I know that going against my secretive instinct and being transparent helps people, what choice do I have?”

He expressed his desire to offer support to others struggling with health challenges driven by the heart health anecdotes he had in the past.

Schwarzenegger assured fans of his well-being and noted his speedy recovery. He thanked the medical team at the Cleveland Clinic for their exceptional care during his surgery.

“I want you to know I’m doing great! I had my surgery on Monday, and by Friday, I was already at a big environmental event with my friend and fellow fitness crusader, Jane Fonda,” he shared.

Moreover, the surgery was necessary due to scar tissue from previous heart surgeries that caused heart rhythm issues. He also emphasized the importance of routine medical check-ups.

Additionally, he shared the personal loss of his mother due to heart problems and expressed gratitude for modern technological advancements that have prolonged his life.
