Bad news about “The Young and the Restless” star “Victor Newman”

Today, we’d like to express our best wishes to Eric Braeden, who plays Victor on The Young and the Restless. The powerful acting veteran recently underwent knee replacement surgery, tweeted a photo from his hospital room, and a poignant message to his devoted fanbase.

“Following knee replacement!” Braeden roared the phrase while raising one arm to show how strong he felt. “I’m thinking of you all right now!”

Fans rushed in to send him their good wishes via Twitter, and one of them, Patty Tramel, advised him to “keep moving.” According to friends who have had the treatment themselves, the more active you are following surgery, the less scarring and faster you will heal. “I hope everything goes well.”
