This may help explain why the statements from Robin Gibb was so positive about his cancer in February and the ill health that beset him in March… too many cancer patients were saying if Robin’s Cancer can go south so fast, maybe mine can too. That’s not the case.

According to his son Robin-John Gibb, 29, he has emerged from mourning to correct reports that blamed liver or colon cancer for the Bee Gee’s death on May 20. Gibb’s long battle with cancer was referenced in the statement his publicist released to press following his passing. “It wasn’t the cancer that killed my father; those reports are wrong,” the son told England’s Daily Express. “Dad had actually gone into remission and the cancer was completely unrecognizable; it was too small to detect. No scan could see it. He actually died of kidney failure.”

The Daily Express described Robin-John as “frustrated” about differences between doctors about how to treat his father in his final weeks, and he expressed unhappiness with the decisions taken by the hospital staff. “At the end there was a divergence of opinion… They had totally different approaches. The (hospital’s) CCU staff started treating him palliatively, while his main doctors wanted to reduce all the sedative medications so he could fight… In the end the decisions were made by CCU. I wanted dialysis and CPR. They said it was futile because he was a Stage 4 cancer patient.”
