Why in the world didn't David Bowie get a liver transplant if he was suffering from liver cancer? Surely the man had enough money to get on top of the list and have the surgery done... How did a man of such stature die of something he could have lived from with a transplant?
if i get dubs this thread becomes a baneposting thread
Liver cancer is a bitch because when the symptoms start showing up it might already be too late. It's not as bad as say pancreatic cancer where when symptoms show, you're as good as dead, but by that time the cancer cells have since spread to other symptoms via lymph system starting usually with the lungs (On Blackstar you could hear Bowie have a hard time catching his breath and slightly winding himself on songs).
A transplant could have worked if they had caught it early via a routine screening but people hate going to the doctor so they wait till they feel sick and then end up dying because of it.
