Still, he continues frequent checkups
Iommi continues to undergo routine checkups every six weeks, revealing that it is easier for him now that he is through with touring. “The doctors were concerned about all the flying I was doing, because it isn’t good for the blood. But I’m on top of it, and I’m eating the right things… although sometimes I still eat the wrong things,” he said, jokingly. Although it seems that the chemotherapy and follow-up treatment, including an operation in January 2017, have tackled the cancer, Iommi claims that he is staying on the defensive. “That’s something that I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life, looking for any warning signs that it might be rearing its ugly head again,” he said.
