(Newser) – Porn star Ron Jeremy is recovering from emergency surgery to repair an aneurysm near his heart, but TMZ reports that doctors won't let him leave the hospital for at least two weeks. The 59-year-old drove himself to Cedars-Sinai in LA yesterday with chest pain, and doctors quickly admitted him to the ICU and prepped him for the procedure. Jeremy is mostly retired from the porn biz, reports the AP, but he previously estimated he had appeared in more than 2,000 films. He also dabbled in non-porn projects, mostly in cameos.

What? "Mostly retired"? i didn't even know Captain Shlong was still alive. He won't mind being in the hospital for weeks. He's used to being in bed...

He'll probably remain bedridden until the medical professionals feel its ok for him to get it up. REST WELL, RON
