However, per TMZ, the procedure is still in the experimental stages and resulted in the 70-year-old having complications. Thankfully, the doctors on hand were prepared for a hiccup in the technique, and were able to move quickly in opening up Schwarzenegger. It's said Arnold was in surgery for several hours.

This isn't the first health scare that the industry vet has had. In case you forgot, back in 1997, Arnold had an aortic valve replaced.

As for his current condition, it's being reported that he's stable. Phew.

We're wishing the Governator only the speediest of recoveries!!

Kim Zolciak Urges Waist Trainer Did NOT Cause Her Mini Stroke! Read Her Defense HERE!

Filed under: Kim ZolciakHealthScary!Instagram

Kim continues to use her waist trainer!

Wow! Nothing gets in between Kim Zolciak and her waist trainer!

Only a couple weeks after suffering a mini stroke, the reality TV star is back home and back to cinching her tummy!

The 37-year-old posted a new snap of her fave accessory to Instagram on Thursday, but she didn't share it with one of her normal captions.

Instead, she decided to clear the air about her recent health scare, saying:

"Good morning!!!! You guys know I love my @nowaistclique waist trainer, I have heard all sorts of ppl commenting on ‘what might have caused my mini stroke' let me be real clear, I am a very healthy woman who takes great care of myself, however I was born with PFO (a hole in my heart) which enabled a clot to cross over and stop oxygen to my brain for a very short time in turn causing me to have a TIA, I will be having heart surgery to repair it. By no means did my waist trainer cause my blood clot or my TIA. I would never use anything nor promote anything that I personally didn't love or something that was dangerous. I LOVE LIFE WAY TOO MUCH! 😉 and I have a whole lotta living to do 😘😘 #KeepItTight #Hourglass #CommentRudeIBlockYou #HeartAwareness #THANKYOUFORALLYOURPRAYERS"

It sounds like her fans were just concerned about her health, especially since there are potential, dangerous complications like we EXCLUSIVELY found out from Dr. Alessi.

But the mom of six wasn't having any of it, and decided to go into detail about what actually caused her mini stroke.

We're just glad Kim is doing better! Though it probably wouldn't hurt for her to give her body a rest until after she's recovered from heart surgery.

What do U think???

Filed under: PolitikHealthSickSurgery

So, so many jokes.

But we'll keep them to ourselves considering the man's condition.

Yes, former Vice President Dick Cheney underwent heart surgery, getting a new heart after being on the heart transplant list for 20 months.

He is said to be doing well.

The Cheney family gave an update on his condition by releasing the following statement:

"Although the former Vice President and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift.

Former Vice President Cheney is thankful to the teams of doctors and other medical professionals at Inova Fairfax and George Washington University Hospital for their continued outstanding care."

The 70-year-old has suffered five heart attacks since 1978.

Good to hear he's recuperating well, though.

Get some rest before you go out and enjoy that new heart of yours!
