Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman is fighting for his own life now, facing his own serious medical issues just three months after his wife died of cancer.

On Monday’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Chapman learns he was suffering from a pulmonary embolism in the heart, a “life-threatening” condition in which one or more arteries have been blocked by blood.

As reported, the 66-year-old Dog’s Most Wanted star was hospitalized just two weeks ago after suffering a possible heart attack.

“You’re a ticking time bomb,” Dr. Oz, who went to visit Chapman at his Denver home, tells the TV star on Monday’s show. “You’re not going to be here with the heart the way it is right now.”

The bad news comes as Chapman continues to mourn the loss of his wife, Beth, who died in June after a long battle with throat cancer.

On The Dr. Oz Show, Chapman, who previously stated that he’s not afraid to die after Beth left, realized he had a literal change of heart.

“Oh, I was afraid to die,” he admitted while suffering the heart attack. “I said, ‘please let go of my heart honey! Quit squeezing my heart.’

“So I take that back, I’m not afraid to die, but I don’t want to.”

After his heart scare, Chapman has begun making strides to turn his life around. He is reportedly on blood thinners, eating a healthy diet, and trying to kick his smoking habit.

The new approach has the approval of Dr. Oz, who offers his help and advice in the upcoming episode.

“Fear of death is normal. I’m surprised you don’t fear death when you’re chasing after convicts,” Oz said. “But when you run away from doctor, that means you have to do your own doctoring.”
