It’s a known fact that the former Mr. Universe and California governor has been suffering from heart ailments through the years and even had an aortic valve replaced early in his career. Reports suggested his problems stemmed from his extensive use of steroids during his body building days though doctors later asserted his use of the muscle builder had nothing to do with his heart disorder.  

Following his recent surgery, Schwarzenegger is reportedly in stable condition though further updates are still unavailable.
