Arnold Schwarzenegger Recovering From Elbow Surgery

This operation is one that Arnold Schwarzenegger did not feel the need to share on social media. Reports have surfaced saying that the former bodybuilder was healing well and will be back to 100% very soon. In a recent video shared by News Access on YouTube, Schwarzenegger is seen with his arm wrapped up for protection following the operation.

While calling for others to sho perseverance, Arnold continued to speak on his journey.

“I tell you what, this surgery wasn’t easy but so what? It was a little nerve surgery. It needed to be operated on but the doctor said I could go back to working out, to take it easy, but I’m working out. Nothing can stop me.”

Arnold hit a slight speed bump with elbow surgery but used it as motivation to get out of the hospital quicker than anticipated.

“I was freaking out. The bottom line is, you cannot roll the clock back. It’s a disaster. I was in the middle of a disaster. So, now I say, how do I get out of it? You have to shift gears. Correct yourself, shift gears, and say okay, what I need to do now is I’ve got to get out of this hospital, number one. How do I get out of this hospital? By getting out of bed and starting walking.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to be an influential voice on and off the bodybuilding stage. That will not change moving forward as he publishes his newsletters and focuses on his own health as well.
