The veteran AEW commentator Jim Ross had revealed back in December last year that he was cancer-free. He was first diagnosed with skin cancer in 2016. He would then undergo a total of 22 radiation treatments starting in late November.
Jim Ross reveals his current health status
On the latest “Grilling JR” podcast on AdFreeShows.com, the WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross gave an update on his health. Ross shared some good news and some decent news about his health situation. He said that he is cancer-free but he has a lesion on his ankle which needs to be treated by the doctor.
Here is what he said:
“I had skin cancer. I got a lesion on my ankle the size of an orange. It’s ugly and grotesque. I got a text today from my oncologist. The good news is I don’t have skin cancer any longer, but the wound has not healed and it’s terribly painful. I’m going back to see my doctor. He’s got me on some strong antibiotics. I’m taking three of them a day which is strong for me. He’s going to turn me over to a wound specialist, which I’ve never even heard of. So I’m going to a wound specialist to see if I can get some relief from this bad thing and expedite the healing process.”
“Walking, standing on my feet for extended lengths of times is very challenging. Something that simplistic. I have to be careful and be smart not to bump into this wound. I have to keep this thing covered up and padded up so I don’t inadvertently bump into something on that wound, which is the kiss of death. My sheets wake me up. My sheets, lying on this wound when I don’t have it covered, is not good.”
