Ron Jeremy is "doing quite well" after emergency surgery, his agent said Wednesday when he issued this photo.
An agent for adult film star Ron Jeremy said Wednesday the actor is "doing quite well" as he recovers at a Southern California hospital from surgery after an aneurysm near his heart.
Jeremy was hospitalized Jan. 29 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after experiencing severe chest pains. The 59-year-old Jeremy underwent an emergency operation to fix the problem, according to agent Mike Esterman.
"Thank you all for the concern and well wishes," Jeremy said in a statement issued by Esterman. "I'm doing very well thanks to modern technology!"
Jeremy is "doing quite well, alert and cracking jokes," Esterman said in an e-mail that included a picture of Jeremy in his hospital bed.
"He's touched and delighted by the outpouring of support from fans and media alike," Esterman wrote in the e-mail.
It is not clear when Jeremy -- No. 1 on adult-film trade publication AVN's list of "The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time" -- will be able to leave the hospital. He has more than 2,000 adult movie credits and several Hollywood film cameo appearances.
