Technoblade has finally revealed the reason behind his recent hiatus from YouTube. He was absent from the platform since he last posted on June 22.
He shared a video titled “where i’ve been” on August 28, disclosing that he was on a break due to a cancer diagnosis. During late June, he felt pain in his right arm and took a recovery break.
Initially, he thought his soreness was due to playing too many games. But after he had a swelling in his right arm, the YouTuber visited his doctor on August 2.
Fortunately, the cancer was detected early by his doctors after running several scans. Recalling the incident on his video, he said:
“The first couple days were actually pretty chill. I was like, dang this is easy bro, and then it kicked in and my energy levels were zero. They were absolutely nothing. It is hard to describe how tired I was.”
Nonetheless, despite his illness, Technoblade currently seems to be in a high spirit. He is battling his cancer and is focused on getting chemotherapy treatment.
Since the announcement, he has been receiving broad support from his fans and followers. #Technosupport trended on Twitter, where his supporters wished him a speedy recovery.
Later, in the video, he also urged his fans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and continue wearing masks taking necessary precautions against the coronavirus.
