In the last two days of July, I noticed that my right arm was starting to hurt a decent amount. My best guess was that it was repetitive stress injury because I’d been playing video games since the age of 5 pretty much non-stop.

Technoblade’s health updates

What happened to Technoblade’s arm? During his most recent cancer update, he stated that he almost became an amputee.

Since he was diagnosed with cancer, the popular YouTube underwent chemotherapy and radiation in preparation for surgery. He is now out of chemotherapy and has confirmed that his hair is growing back.

There was a lot of back and forth about amputating his arm to help him combat cancer. Finally, the doctor gave the Minecraft YouTuber two options. He was to undergo lib-salvage surgery, which would save his arm or get him amputated. Technoblade settled on the limb-salvage surgery option.

According to Technoblade’s health updates, which he uploads on his YouTube channel after a period, the weeks after his surgery were the worst in his life.

I wake up, and my right arm can’t move, which is expected. But what’s less expected for me is that my left leg can’t move either; it is covered in bandages. So, I knew that to reconstruct my shoulder after the surgery, they needed to take some muscle and skin from elsewhere on the body, but I thought they would take the muscle from my back, from the latissimus dorsi.
