MICHAEL Douglas is losing his courageous battle with advanced throat cancer — sources say.
According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, Douglas is wearing a catheter under his clothing to contend with a new issue in his cancer battle — incontinence.
“Michael is continuing to lose his battle. He’s fought his doctors, who have pleaded with him to have a feeding tube inserted to help him put on weight. But he’s refused,” a source said.
“The stage 4 cancer and treatments left him gaunt and weak. He was down to 139 pounds just a few weeks ago.
“And ever since Michael vetoed a feeding tube, the sores in his mouth and throat have made it tough for him to swallow food and keep it down.
“He thinks he can get by on aloe-infused water, which he drinks constantly.
“While the water helps detoxify his body and improve digestion and circulation, it’s like putting a Band-aid on a major wound.
“And a new diet of raw fats, organic liver, creamy pasta and chicken soup that was thought to help him put on weight has not been successful.”
Recent reports claimed Douglas, 66, is preparing to die and planning his own funeral.[imagebrowser id=593]
