Unhappy Patrick Swayze: "I'm Going Through Hell"



Patrick Swayze has always been a fighter on the big screen. Now he's proving his warrior worth in real life.

Speaking out in detail about his battle with pancreatic cancer, the 56-year-old actor tells Barbara Walters of his daily struggles, including his insistence not to take pain medication while filming his new A&E crime drama, The Beast, premiering next week.

"I've never been one to run from a challenge," Swayze said during the interview, which airs Wednesday and was excerpted today on ABCNews.com. "You can bet that I'm going through hell. And I've only seen the beginning of it."

While again refuting tabloid rumors that he's on his deathbed, the Ghost star admitted the cancer has generated "a lot of fear," particularly after learning it had spread to his liver.

"There's a lot of stuff going on," he added. "Yeah, I'm scared. Yeah, I'm angry. Yeah, I'm [asking], why me? Yeah, I'm all this stuff."

Swayze, looking lean but still fit, also opened up about the moment he first discovered he had the cancer; it was one year ago on New Year's Eve.

"I tried to have champagne, and it would be like pouring acid, you know, on an open wound," he said. "My indigestion issues got gigantic and constant. And then I started thinking, I'm getting skinny. I dropped about 20 pounds in the blink of an eye. And then when you see it in the mirror, when all of a sudden, you pull your eyes down and the bottom of your eyes go yellow and jaundice sets in—then you know something's wrong."

The former Dirty Dancer also talked about the agony of chemotherapy treatments during The Beast's five-month shoot, which ended up bringing added intensity to his role as an undercover FBI agent.

"When you're shooting, you can't do drugs," Swayze said. "I can't do hydrocodone or Vicodin or these kinds of things that take the edge off of it, 'cause it takes the edge off of your brain."

As it stands now, Swayze has sworn off the chemo in favor of a new treatment.

"What winning is to me is not giving up, is no matter what's thrown at me, I can take it," Swayze said. "And I can keep going."

E!
----------------------------



My thoughts and prayers are with him. I also have a family member who is dying from pancreatic cancer they gave her less than a month to live. I really hope and pray that they find a cure for cancer.

I believe in the power of positive thinking - Patrick Swayze seems to be really trying to battle this. If he can just keep his mind positive and keep fighting then maybe he'll pull through this. I hope so.

The poor guy got one of the unbeatable cancers, for the most part. My husband's best friend died in September of the same disease. It ain't pretty. It claimed Michael Landon's life as well.

I pray everyday for Patrick. My paternal grandmother died from pancreatic
cancer.And Dad says she suffered alot.Poor Grandma,could cook meals or
clean the house for the family because she was in so much pain.
So I'm imagine Mr.Swayze is going through alot right now.
So hard to believe that this happened to such a great actor.

So you don't think Patrick can make it?

Pancreatic cancer is very serious. People rarely recover from it. I know of at least 5 people personally who died from it. I think that it is what killed Michael Landon. Usually by the time that it is diagnosed it is too late. I sincerely hope that he can beat this thing! So sad!

Pancreatic cancer is one of the worst. My friend's uncle was diagnosed a couple of years ago. He was given 3 to 5 months, but lasted just over a year. He was a great guy too, and only 56. I don't understand why good people have to suffer like that.

My prayers go out to Patrick and his family.
