Ron Jeremy Will Stay in Hospital for Weeks He's recovering from surgery for heart aneurysm By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Jan 31, 2013 12:59 PM CST 20 comments Comments Ron Jeremy in 2008. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini) (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.
