Schwarzenegger recalls the scary moment after open-heart surgery

Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls a scary moment that made him “freak out” while recovering from open-heart surgery. In a YouTube video posted late last month, the actor and former California governor said he woke up to doctors telling him his surgery — which was supposed to be non-invasive — was turning into a much more serious procedure . “We made a mistake,” Schwarzenegger recalled the doctors’ words in the YouTube video. This caused internal bleeding, he said, so his doctors “had to open me up very quickly to save my life.” Schwarzenegger said he would start filming Terminator: Dark Fate, the sixth installment in the ‘Terminator’ series, in 2019 just a few months after the surgery – out of the hospital and back on his feet. “I was in the middle of a disaster,” he said. Schwarzenegger argued that being discharged from the hospital meant he had to get out of bed and start walking. It was a task he hired his friends to do, saying he called them up and asked them to come along and “cheer me on” and count his steps. “We did that every day,” he said, adding that even though he was “wobbling through the hallways,” doctors told him he needed to exercise his lungs because he could die if he caught pneumonia. Schwarzenegger made a full recovery, crediting his “positive attitude” and “entire support system” for helping him get there. “When I started filming ‘Terminator 6’ I was back together,” he said with a smile in the video. Schwarzenegger, who had a congenital heart defect, underwent three heart surgeries. In 2018, he underwent open-heart surgery to replace a pulmonary valve, having already had a pulmonary valve replaced in 1997. He also underwent heart surgery to replace an aortic valve in 2020.
