Ron Jeremy Returns to Work After Brush With Death
Proving once and for all that not even a life-threatening medical condition can keep a dedicated adult star down (pun!), legendary schtupper Ron Jeremy is back at work following two aneurysms near his heart that almost killed him several months ago. Thank god. Adult films just haven't been the same without him.
Jeremy, who's starred in more than 2,000 films over a career spanning 30 years, was hospitalized in February in critical condition after complaining of severe chest pains. He underwent two emergency operations to repair abdominal and thoracic aneurysms.
Although he's on the mend now, the adult film star was understandably concerned about his ability to perform in his now-filming flick, 'Jessica Drake's Guide to Wicked Sex: Legends.'
"I was nervous," he says. "Blood pressure medicine can affect the penis. I'm taking blood pressure medicine now and I was able to do it, but my scenes aren't as good as they used to be. I don't get the full massive." Thanks, Ron. That's way more than we needed to know.
Still, Jeremy is grateful for the outpouring of support following his brush with death, although, he said, it's changed how fans approach him somewhat. "People used to come up to me (and say), can I see your penis?" he said. "Now it's, how's your rehab coming along? We're glad you're okay."
Get well soon, Hedgehog. We're, uh, pulling for a speedy recovery.
Sorry. Poor choice of words.
