Arnold Schwarzenegger feels fantastic and has already been able to take a walk in Cleveland.
The famous American film actor Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent heart surgery вЂ” he had an aortic valve replaced. The former governor of California announced this on his Twitter on Friday, October 23rd.
According to him, the surgery was performed at the Cleveland Clinic (Ohio).
вЂњThanks to the team at the Cleveland clinic, I now have a new aortic valve in addition to my pulmonary valve after previous surgery. I feel fantastic and have already walked around Cleveland seeing the wonderful statues in the city,вЂќ wrote the 73-year-old actor.
To the post, he attached a photo from the hospital ward and a few more photographs with monuments taken during walks around the city.
The aortic valve allows blood to flow from the left ventricle of the heart to the aorta. The termination of its normal functioning is fraught with severe cardiac consequences. To prevent them, the valve is changed.
Recall that in August of this year, Arnold Schwarzenegger first became a grandfather. His 30-year-old daughter Katherine gave birth to her first child from her 41-year-old husband, Hollywood actor Chris Pratt.
