Arnold Schwarzenegger has been discharged from the hospital and is "feeling great" after undergoing emergency open-heart surgery,  sources confirm to RadarOnline.com exclusively.

The former California governor, 70, had the operation on March 29, 2018 to replace his pulmonic valve for the second time.

The former Mr. Olympia has suffered a variety of heart ailments over the years. At the start of his career in 1997 he even had an aortic valve replaced due to a congenital heart defect. During the first surgery, sources reveal to Radar exclusively, he knew the fix wasn't permanent.

But the Terminator star was in good spirits just one week later. “He’s excited to get home, and feels great,” squealed the insider.

Earlier this week Schwarzenegger took to Twitter and quoted his famous Terminator catchphrase to give an update on his health. 

“It’s true: I’m back,” he wrote. “I went to sleep expecting to wake up with a small incision and woke up with a big one – but guess what? I woke up, and that’s something to be thankful for.”
