Arnold Schwarzenegger gives health update following pacemaker procedure

Last Monday, Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent surgery to have a pacemaker fitted. The 76-year-old actor, who has had three open-heart surgeries in the past, shared his experience on his podcast ‘Arnold’s Pump Club’. He explained the procedure by likening himself to his Terminator character with his new “machine part”.

Despite his upbringing in Austria where medical issues were not openly discussed, Schwarzenegger has decided to share his experience with the hope of inspiring others facing similar situations. He has received messages from people with a bicuspid aortic valve, like him, who have found courage and hope in his openness about his surgeries.

Schwarzenegger assured fans that he is recovering well and even attended an environmental event with Jane Fonda just a few days after his surgery. He expressed gratitude to his medical team at the Cleveland Clinic for their care and for making the surgery as painless as possible. The surgery was deemed necessary by doctors due to irregularities in his heartbeat caused by scars from previous surgeries.

Keeping in touch with his medical team and having regular check-ups has been a priority for Schwarzenegger over the years, allowing for early detection of issues and necessary interventions. Despite the unexpected surgery, he remains positive about his recovery and plans to continue advocating for health and fitness alongside his friend Jane Fonda.
