Arnold Schwarzenegger recently shared a life-threatening experience as he recounted the moments surrounding his third open-heart surgery shortly before starting work on “Terminator 6.”
He said that he was ‘freaking out’ during the surgery. Schwarzenegger expressed his anxiety, recalling waking up to doctors informing him that the procedure had deviated from the plan. The medical team inadvertently punctured his heart wall, requiring immediate open-heart surgery to address internal bleeding. The surgery did not go as planned, and they had to make changes.
Schwarzenegger worked hard
Despite this ordeal, the 76-year-old former California governor maintained a determined mindset. He acknowledged the gravity of the situation and emphasized the need to adapt to the circumstances. Schwarzenegger worked hard to improve his condition to get out of the hospital.
Schwarzenegger began his recovery journey by taking small daily steps, gradually progressing from walking 10 steps a day to more extensive strolls within the hospital. He even enlisted the support of friends and family to motivate him and maintain a rigorous exercise routine to protect against pneumonia. His doctors told him he had to exercise his lungs or he might get pneumonia.
Getting ready for his role
With unwavering positivity and resilience, Schwarzenegger recovered sufficiently to prepare for his “Terminator: Dark Fate” role in 2019. He emphasized the importance of staying in shape and regaining physical mobility for his role, particularly the demanding fight scenes. He worked hard at the gym to stay in shape.
Throughout his recovery, Schwarzenegger leaned on his support system, including his four children – Patrick and Christopher, and daughters Katherine and Christina – from his previous marriage to Maria Shriver.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver were married in 1986 but separated in 2011, with their divorce finalized a decade later. Additionally, he has a son, Joseph Baena, from an affair with Mildred “Patty” Baena during his marriage to Shriver.
