Talk-show host Regis Philbin says he will have a blood clot in his calf removed next week.The co-host of "Live! With Regis and Kelly" says leg pain is making it difficult for him to walk.

He had hip replacement surgery in December and triple heart bypass surgery in 2007.

"One of the things you've got to do when you get a new hip is continue to walk, but I can't walk very long," said Philbin.

The 78-year-old says he'll undergo the procedure Tuesday, but gave no additional details.
