Robin Gibb Cancer Setback

The pop icon has returned to a London hospital to continue his cancer treatment.

Bee Gees star Robin Gibb, 62, was admitted to the London Clinic on Feb. 22 from a possible setback with his battle with cancer, but he’s “Stayin Alive.”

Despite speculation, reps for Robin have dismissed his return to the hospital as something to be worried about, claiming it’s just part of his rehabilitation, says the Daily Mail.

The singer announced five months ago that he had liver and colon cancer, but it’s been reported that docs have been very impressed with his progress.

“We feared the worst. But doctors have said they are astounded at his response to treatment,” a family insider told The Sun.

Just twelve days prior, Robin made his first concert appearance at the London Palladium since he announced his diagnosis and sang along with military trio The Soldiers for charity. At the event, he told the audience he was feeling “fantastic” and cracked a few jokes.

And despite looking incredibly emaciated during a televised chat with host Alan Titchmarsh that same month, Robin’s attitude was totally chipper.

“If you go back to when we first started I’ve always been skinny,” he said. “It’s hard for me to put on weight.”

He added, “If I had a choice about how I’d like to feel for the rest of my life, this would be it. If I wanted to tick all the right boxes about sense of well-being, it would be now. I don’t know how I could feel any better.”
