Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has an advanced stage of colorectal cancer after waking from a coma and is still in intensive care. Gibb, 62, fell into a coma last week after contracting pneumonia.
Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam said Gibb was being treated for advanced colorectal cancer and had caught pneumonia as he was weakened from grueling doses of chemotherapy and two operations.
Thillainayagam told Gibb’s family that he may not wake up from the coma, which was three days ago.
However, he did wake up and is now fully conscious and talking to family and friends.
Gibb is currently breathing with the help of an oxygen mask and needs intravenous feeding and antibiotics.
