Jim Ross Gives The Wrestling World An Update On His Health
Recently on his “Grilling JR” podcast, Jim Ross gave an update on his health, and how he’s doing after being proclaimed to be in remission and now on a road to recovery.
“So everything’s good here, man. I am still dealing with this frigging wound. Well, these wound care people are serious. Yeah, I went to my first appointment and I thought it was gonna be about 30 minutes. It’s three hours. And here’s what happens there mentally. You have three hours to contemplate your fate. What if they find cancer back? What if they? What if? What if?. So it’s very unsettling to say the least.
But then getting to the news? Well, it’s probably gonna take six more months of healing, and they want me to do the hyperbaric chamber. But here’s the problem with that, they want to do it every day. So I said I can’t do it every day, I just can’t. I work, I have a job, I have made commitments professionally that I’m gonna maintain and keep. So it’s just a, it’s not a matter of putting my job before my health right now, it sounds like it.
Jim Ross continued:
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 just have to, it’s just a fait accompli that I just I have an issue here and I didn’t plan on it. I have an issue here that we just got to address.
And I told the doctor, I said we have to be creative doc. We have to. We can’t just get in the rut of this, how you do this. There’s got to be other options. And he’s said well, there are some other options, let’s explore that.
