A friend of Douglas told the Daily Express "Michael is gaunt and fading fast. He is desperately weak from the chemo but you can see in his eyes that he is fighting this. It’s not looking good now."
According to Hollywood Scoop New York specialist Dr.Eric Braveman has said that his chances of survival are "much more like 20 percent. He is likely to be depressed and tired. It is very possible he could die."
Douglas' publicist said that he finished his treatments last week. "Doctors were very pleased and have scheduled no more treatments." Douglas now has a six to eight week recuperation period, "which all cancer patients go through."
