Arnold Schwarzenegger thanked fans for their support and well-wishes as he recovers from open-heart surgery, saying that he's feeling "good" but "not great yet".

The 70-year-old actor, bodybuilder and ex-governor went on to reassure fans that he is definitely improving, even if he isn't 100 percent yet. So I will stay in touch with all of you.

"I just wanted you to know that I'm feeling much better", Schwarzenegger said. "Gov. Schwarzenegger's pulmonic valve was successfully replaced and he is now recovering from the surgery and is in stable condition". The "Terminator" star was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on April 6, and has been recovering at home.

Great is at a different level. "And thank you all for being such jewels".

Entertainment Weekly said Schwarzenegger's March surgery was the result of complications from a planned heart valve replacement for the original put in back in 1997 because of a congenital heart defect. But I'm good. I feel good.

Less than a week after leaving a hospital, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he's "good". "I get good care, good doctors, good nurses, everything is fantastic".

Schwarzenegger, who filmed the 53-second clip in front of a chess board, explained he was playing the game to "freshen" his mind and memory.

"During that 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", Ketchell's statement continues. Governor Schwarzenegger's pulmonic valve was successfully replaced'.
