RUSH Limbaugh said he may have to give up his controversial radio show because "cancer treatment is kicking his a**."
The radio show host opened up about his ongoing treatment on Tuesday, saying he is facing "extremely challenging times."
The radio show host first revealed he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer over his golden microphone during a show in early February.
On his Tuesday airing, Limbaugh said he "vowed not to be a cancer patient" on his radio show and "shield as much of that from the daily program as I can."
"I'm in the third wave of treatment now," Limbaugh said. "There have been many cycles, but this is the third wave.
"And this current wave, I have to tell you – is kicking my a**," he added.
He went on, saying that due to treatment, he's been low on energy and "virtually worthless, virtually useless" for the last week.
"I haven't left the house. I haven't done much of anything except just try and rest and relax," Limbaugh said.
He added that he expected to feel the way he does and he was made aware of how treatment may may him feel when it began.
Limbaugh added that he's doing "extremely well, all things considered," and that he thanks God every day he wakes up.
He added, however, that he simply doesn't have the same energy that he used to.
Doing the three-hour sit-down for his radio show wears him out, he said.
“I didn’t realize until I got sick – I honestly didn’t… I didn’t realize how much physical and mental energy doing these three hours [demands]” Limbaugh said.
"I'm aware of my energy limitations," he added.
He then added that he may have to do "best-of" episodes or have guest hosts on the show if necessary.
“I hope that it doesn’t happen… and I’m not at the same time, making any excuses,” Limbaugh said.
"But I do feel the need to keep you informed," he added.
He went on, telling his viewers that all that matters is that he is "still here."
“As to how the treatment is going, I have no idea," he said.
"Well, I do – but I’m still here and that’s all that’s important.”
Shortly after he revealed his diagnosis in February, Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by friend President Donald Trump.
The highest civilian honor was presented to Limbaugh by First Lady Melania Trump.
