LOS ANGELES -- A spokesman says porn star Ron Jeremy is recovering from surgery at a Los Angeles hospital after an aneurysm near his heart sent him to intensive care.

Agent Mike Esterman says in an email to The Associated Press that he and others were waiting for Jeremy to awake Wednesday night after a smooth procedure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Esterman says the 59-year-old Jeremy had a heavy feeling in his chest and drove himself to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed the aneurysm and put him in the intensive care unit.

One of the best-known names in the porn industry, Jeremy has said he's appeared in more than 2,000 adult films.

While officially retired, he still shows up in films and public events and appeared in the reality TV series "The Surreal Life."
