Robin Gibb facing further chemo
Bee Gees star Robin Gibb is facing further chemotherapy once he's strong enough following his stint in a coma, according to a friend of the singer.
The legendary hitmaker spent at least 10 days unconscious at a London hospital last month after contracting pneumonia during his longrunning battle against liver and colon cancer.
He stunned doctors by regaining consciousness against the odds, but his wife Dwina recently revealed he's facing a challenge to learn how to walk and eat again.
And Gibb is also facing another round of chemotherapy, according to composer pal Jim Dooley.
He tells the Daily Express, "Dwina has said Robin's chances are 50-50. Because he spent so long in a coma, there are a lot of things he must learn to do again, including how to walk.
"He is receiving prayers from every religion all over the world - and I understand a special blessing is on the way from the Pope.
"The plan is to get his strength up so he can resume chemotherapy."
