Bee Gees - Robin Gibb Has To Learn To Walk Again

Bee Gees star Robin Gibb spent so long lying on his back in a coma, he's having to learn how to walk and eat again.
The legendary singer spent at least ten days unconscious at a London hospital earlier this month (Apr12) after contracting pneumonia during his longrunning battle against liver and colon cancer.
He stunned doctors by regaining consciousness against the odds - and his wife Dwina has now revealed the star is determined to battle back to full health, even though his time in a coma has left him struggling to walk and eat.
She tells Hello! magazine, "He can't wait to go out into the garden with our dogs, Ollie and Missie. But it's going to be a long time before he's strong enough to do that.
"After being fed through a drip and lying in the same position for days, he has to learn to eat and walk again. We know he's very strong, though - he has faced death and conquered it."

It's great to hear about your recovery RodeoGal. I iamgine it was not at all easy. Plus reading about Roger. We DO need cures. But when the hell are they going to come about? If I'm not mistaken, I believe one of Robin's brothers died of the same thing he has now. I hope Robin has better luck then his brother did.

As a cancer patient it happened to me- complications from chemo, lowers the immune system, infections, complicated liver. The neuropathy in the legs and feet and weakness is bad and food is just hard to eat, mouth gets sores - and the digestive system is bad enough without his surgical problems. I was sent home with a walker and it was my best buddy for a couple months - it was a frigging challenge to turn over in bed.- a little forced physical therapy and he will get better. A diet of dairy is good - builds muscle fast and tastes good. Toasted cheese sand and tomatoe soup was the 1st thing I liked. Puddings are great. It's really hard to eat.. I do empathize with Robin - it's a rotten thing to find yourself in. "Hope is a thing with feathers" by Emily Dickinson really makes absolute sense to me looking at this time. God is helping You Robinand you WILL get stronger - this too shall pass. But the lack of feeling in the legs and feet? Sticks around forever - you will still walk ~ one foot in front of the other. He's fortunate to have come through this far but he has just to take it easy from now on out. tough and long recovery. I hate cancer - we need CURES. Chemo is bull. So hard on the body.
