 Patrick Swayze Refuses To Undergo Life-Saving Lung Surgery
Cancer-stricken Patrick Swayze has reportedly refused to undergo life-saving lung surgery, thus prompting fears that he is close to the end of his cancer battle.

According to the National Enquirer, the doctors of 'Dirty Dancing' star, who is suffering from pancreatic cancer, have been forced to halt his chemotherapy treatment because he's suffering a lung infection.

It says that Swayze was offered surgery to remove part or all of the infected lung, but he turned down the risky procedure.

"The infection hadn't responded to treatment, and breathing became so hard for him that his family and friends, and his doctors were desperate to provide any relief," Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.

"But after months of painful treatments and fighting so hard just to get up in the mornings, he felt he had done all he could," the source added.

A friend said: "He's always fought this disease on his terms, and a long, painful recovery was not how he wanted to spend his last days."

SOMETIME PEOPLE CAN LIVE 90 YEARS, AND YET NOT RELLY HAVE A LIFE, I BELIEVE PATRICK HAS HAD SEVERAL LIVES SQUEEZED INTO 50 SOMETHING YEARS. I DO NOT KNOW THE FACTS, NOR IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO LIVE A COUPLE MORE YEARS, IN THE FASHION HE IS ACCUSTOMED, BUT SOMETIMES IT IS TIME TO CHECK OUT, AND ITS BETTER TO BID FAREWELL, PAY YOUR TAB, AND GO. THIS IS SOMETHING EVERYNE ON EARTH, SOONER, OR LATER FACES, WHY IS SO MUCH ATTENTION BEING PAID TO THIS FELLOW, BECAUSE HE IS A MATINEE IDOL, HOW IRONIC AND BLASPHEMOUS CAN A PEOPLE AS WHOLE BE, HOWEVER HE GOES,, ITS PRIVATE, AND NOONES BUSINESS, WHICH INCLUDES ME.
