Jim Kelly’s wife says his latest surgery went well

Jill Kelly on Instagram

Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is continuing to show strength in his battle against cancer.

Kelly’s wife, Jill Kelly, wrote on Instagram that he is doing well under the circumstances, along with a picture of them holding hands in his hospital room.

“Never stop holding hands. In sickness and in health,” Jill Kelly wrote. “Out of surgery and in recovery.
Still in a lot of pain, but everything went well. Thank GOD! No teeth yet, but 5 implants were inserted into the new bone in Jim’s upper jaw. More technical than I can explain.”

The 58-year-old Kelly revealed five years ago that he had been diagnosed with cancer in his jaw. He has undergone several surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Through it all, those close to the Kelly family have marveled at the strength of Jim and Jill Kelly.

  1. As a cancer survivor myself (twice), I feel deeply in my heart for Jim Kelly and his family. It is such a tough road to travel and it dominates your life as much as you try to live normally. Best wishes and speedy recovery for you, Jim. I had the pleasure of watching you quarterback the Bills and get them to 4 Super Bowls. I am still rooting for you to beat this terrible disease.

  2. Why would anybody give a “thumbs down” to words of encouragement to such a wonderful human being? Just saying…

    There are some people so filled with hate and self loathing that they no of nothing else or any other way of being. I’m not saying this in anger or sarcasm. I genuinely feel sorry for someone who doesn’t have the capacity to have compassion for another human being that is struggling in life.

    Agreed. But most of these people would not say anything in person close to the statements and hate they show anonymously behind their keyboards. I’m quite confident that Jim Kelly is far tougher and a better person than these cowardly punks.

    Good on you Jim!

    Hopefully, science finds a cure for this horrid genetic disease soon.

  6. What an animal. But I knew that by the time I was 12 years old, I don’t need to keep seeing this, he has nothing left to prove. Here’s hoping Jim gets better and stays better!

  7. Jim Kelly will always be remembered as tough. As he continues to battle cancer and win I think he will be more remembered more for that than his toughness on the field….

  8. Had the same situation a little more advanced i was given 12 months ,10 surgeries from 26 hours to 6 hours ,over 60 radiation treatments,i don’t even remember the amount of chemo,hyperbaric etc etc 11 years later and counting.
    Jim keep positive brother don’t ever give up ,cancer can suck a bag a d’s

  9. I’m sure the thumbs down are related to the talk of god and prayer. What an awful shame this country has come to, for people to give a negative reaction to someone expressing their faith. What it’s coming down to is the left wants to express its opinions on everything, and block any other opinion. What happened to the party of free speech? Get well Jim, many of us are praying for you, we don’t care what the haters think…I’m also praying that the kneeling down this season is over. I fear if it isn’t the NFL will not recover so easily the following season.

  10. Preface this by saying I am a head and neck surgeon.
    1. Sounds that this was the insertion of posts into the surgically created mandible so that ultimately he can have teeth.
    2. His surgeon is unsurprisingly one of the top people in the world in the field.
    3. Cannot help but admire the strength to not only go through this but to do it publicly.

  11. I know someone who is truly incapable of loving anyone. They have no concern for others. No compassion. No remorse for things they’ve done that are rotten. Barely any friends or family left. Now had to find a similar person to date because of being desperate. Some people are just that way and won’t ever change. Ignoring them, not giving the constant attention they need and knowing you’re a better person is the only way to deal with these types of people

    This is not about you, you need to seek help for your problems, this is about Jim Kelly.

  13. This is not about you…it was in response to people asking who can be so disgusting to do a thumbs down….guilty conscience? Maybe it means you need to seek help then…
