AEW announcer and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross took to an episode his Grilling Jr podcast to provide an update on how his wounds are healing from his recent cancer treatment. According to the WWE Hall of Famer, he is still dealing with the wound and thoughts are still entering his mind of his cancer coming back.
Jim Ross also discussed the doctors wanting him to do the hyperbaric chamber every day, but there are issues he is facing and how he’s asked the doctors to find other treatments without having to use the hyperbaric chamber.
This is what Jim Ross said:
“I’m still dealing with this frigging wound.” “These wound care people are serious. I went to my first appointment and I thought it was gonna be about 30 minutes. It was three hours. Here’s what happens there mentally. You have three hours to contemplate your fate. What if they find cancer back? What if? What if? What if? So it’s very unsettling to say the least. Then you get the news. ‘Well, it’s probably gonna take six more months of healing.'”
“They want me to do the hyperbaric chamber, but here’s the problem with that. They want to do it every day. I said, ‘I can’t do it every day. I just can’t. I work. I have a job. I made commitments professionally that I’m gonna maintain and keep.’ It’s not a matter of putting my job before my health. It sounds like it. Now if I wasn’t working, I would go along with their plan. But still, it’s four months of hyperbaric chamber stuff. So he’s going to try to treat it without using the hyperbaric chamber or whatever it’s called and we’ll see how it goes. I have an issue here. I didn’t plan on it. I have an issue here that we just got to address. I told the doctor, ‘We have to be creative doc. We can’t just get in the rut of this how you do this. There’s got to be other options. He said, ‘Well, there are some other options.’ Let’s explore them.”
