Doctor: Bee Gees’ Robin Gibb has colorectal cancer
LONDON (AP) — Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has colorectal cancer and remains in intensive care after waking from a coma, his doctor said Sunday.
The 62-year-old singer fell into a coma last week after contracting the pneumonia. Dr. Thillainayagam said that three days ago he had warned Mr. Gibb’s family that the singer might not wake up. Instead, Mr. Gibb is now fully conscious and able to speak.
Dr. Thillainayagam said Mr. Gibb is still in intensive care and is “exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished.” He is breathing with the help of an oxygen mask and needs intravenous feeding and antibiotics.
“It is testament to Robin’s extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds to get where he is now,” Dr. Thillainayagam said in a statement.
The Bee Gees — British-born, Australia-raised brothers Robin, Barry and Maurice Gibb — had a string of disco-era hits, including “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Stayin’ Alive.”
