As OK! previously reported, the bodybuilder shared the recent health update with his fans on a new episode of his "Arnold's Pump Club" podcast.

"Last Monday, I had surgery to become a little bit more of a machine. I got a pacemaker," he said. "I have to tell you, just saying this to all of you goes against so much of my upbringing in Austria, where nobody ever talked about medical issues. Anything related to healthcare was kept to yourself."

The Hollywood star reassured his listeners he's "doing great," and the doctors took "amazing care" of him to make "the surgery as painless as possible."

Last year, the father-of-five went into detail about his third open heart surgery, which occurred in 2018.

"I was really freaking out, and I woke up all of a sudden and the doctor was standing in front of me, and saying 'I'm so sorry, but unlike what we planned, a non-invasive surgery ... we made a mistake and poked through the heart wall, and there was internal bleeding, and we had to open [you] up to save your life,'" he said in a video clip.

Luckily, the Netflix star relied on his his loved ones.

"I called my buddies in and said, 'You guys have to fire me up. You have to count the number of steps that I'm doing.' And this is what we did, everyday," he shared. "Everybody came into the hospital, they said, 'OK, Arnold, it's time to get up!' I wanted to get really going with the exercise, get out of the hospital as quick as possible, and then get going with the training again."
