The 70-year-old wrote, on Friday, took to Twitter to update everyone about his health. "I really appreciated that so much", he began.

"I just want you to know that I am feeling much better", he said in the clip. The operation was meant to simply replace a valve being used to correct a congenital heart defect, but ended up requiring open-heart surgery to address.

He was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on April 6. He also served as governor of California from 2003 to 2011. Great is a totally different level, but I am good.

Schwarzenegger underwent a scheduled heart procedure on March 29.

And while the Hollywood star has revealed he is making a good recovery, Schwarzenegger still remains some way off being back to full health.

'I'm here at a chessboard, playing a little bit of chess, to freshen my mind and my memory a little bit and we move forward'.

'During that a procedure, an open-heart surgery team was prepared, as they frequently are in these circumstances, in case the catheter procedure was unable to be performed.

The replacement was never permanent, so the governor chooses to replace it.
