I'm afraid I'm not bearing good news... took me a bit to get ready to post this.
Jor has passed, about a week and a half ago his mom noticed a kink, she brought him into the herp vet and she said either he'd live and okay life (the kink was very minor and near his cloaca), or if he was acting like he was in pain (not eating) it would be kinder to humanely euthanize him. Later that night he wouldn't eat, so she gave him some space, thinking maybe it was just stress from the vet visit. I was chatting with her and she told me how the visit went, the next day she went to check on him and he had passed by then. So she didn't get his body on ice fast enough to have an autopsy done but did consult with the herp vet again.
She said it likely wasn't kink-related, but rather he likely had organ damage from the improper care as a hatchling (also that could've caused weak bones due to the lack of calcium explaining the kink that came without any seen incidents, he had just been in his tank), and that once he reached a certain weight, his body could no longer support itself. (which she mentioned he had capped off in the double digits a week or so prior and he hadn't been really gaining since)
She cremated him and put him in a little urn. And made a agreement with her roommate, she's going to foster for a local reptile rescue as a way to remember him. I thought that was sweet... I'm just grateful that he was loved before he died, she did a really good job caring for him and I know she had a hard time dealing with his death. She was making a lot of progress and he was doing so well. It shocked us both.
Rest in peace little snakey you'll grow big enough to encircle the world over the bridge.
