According to TMZ reports, 70-year-old Schwarzenegger went to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, replaced the catheter valve and experienced complications, and quoted sources close to the “terminator” star.
A representative of Schwarzenegger did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
He recalled that his doctor was skeptical of this decision in 2012 when he was interviewed for “60 minutes.”
“He said, ‘Your wife is pregnant, what do you mean, you will not tell her?'” Schwarzenegger said in the CBS News magazine. “I told him, ‘This is a plan.
I have to do heart surgery. You have to do it quietly. No one knows. I do it at six o’clock in the morning. Four days later I left here. I go to Mexico. I will tell Maria I’m here.” It’s a bit busy. I’m on holiday. When I come back, I’ll be tanned. No one will know.
Shortly after that operation, the representative of Schwarzenegger told the Los Angeles Times that the surgery was not related to the actor’s past use of steroids, and called it “the congenital disease in his family”.
