Jim Ross Provides Update On Cancer Recovery
Jim Ross has given new information on how his recovery from skin cancer is going, including how he will be starting new treatment soon.
In October 2021, Good Ol’ JR revealed that he had been diagnosed with skin cancer. Whilst by December he was cancer-free and returning to the commentary desk in AEW, the recovery and treatment has continued since then.
Speaking on the most recent edition of his Grilling JR Podcast, Jim Ross noted that everything is still moving in the right direction and provided some details of new treatment he is due to begin next week.
I’ve had a good week regarding my cancer issues. I’m going to start next week with some treatment. I can’t remember what the thing is called. Hyperbaric Chamber? Something along those lines. I’m going in on Tuesday for my first test run. See how it works. They think it will speed up the healing. And if it does, I win. And that’s what I’m looking for.
Jim Ross went on to discuss his frustrations over the recovery, and how it could be another year before it is fully complete. Despite that, he is still staying upbeat about his life at the moment.
We’re making some progress there. But I still think it’s going to be about a year of healing this wound. I’m just tired of dressing it and undressing it. Medicating and all that s***.
Life is good. I’m alive, I have no cancer and I’m just healing. These burns, that’s what they look like. It looks like I’ve been caught in a fire. But it’s looking a lot better than it did.
Having sat on both sides of the fence, Jim Ross recently opened up on how he feels former WWE Chairman would run AEW were he in charge of the rival promotion.
