The 7-year-old actor behind the Darth Vader mask in a popular 2011 Super Bowl ad for Volkswagen, has been discharged from Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
Doctors said Max Page is doing well after undergoing two hours of surgery to replace his pulmonary valve on June 14.
While the doctors spoke on the boy’s medical success, Page looked to the future with a characteristically youthful vision.
“I’m excited about a lot of things,” Page said. “Especially having a milkshake.”
Page was born with a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot, and conceded Monday that he did feel a little pain in his chest and doctors said it will likely take six to eight weeks for him to fully recover.
The valve-replacement surgery, performed at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, had been expected. Page has been treated at the hospital since he was an infant.
