Even a heart aneurysm can't stop legendary porn star Ron Jeremy.

The 59-year-old adult film actor and director was in critical condition after undergoing two surgeries last month, but he's now recovering and wants fans to know he's all right.

On Feb. 6, the actor, who has performed in more than 2,000 adult films, posted a photo of himself with one of his nurses, giving the thumps up:

Though Jeremy appears to be in good spirits, earlier this week his agent, Mike Esterman, told the Associated Press that the actor wasn't allowed to receive visitors or deliveries following his surgeries. He doesn't expect him to leave the hospital "for some time," which means it's likely to be even longer before fans can expect to see the the retired porn veteran making any public appearances.
