Jade taken back to hospital

lunes, 2 de marzo de 2009 |

Cancer-stricken Jade Goody has been admitted to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital only five minutes after leaving the Royal Marsden today.

The star is believed to be receiving treatment for unbearable and ongoing abdominal pain.

The 27-year-old Big Brother star left the Royal Marsden Hospital, in Fulham, south west London, in a wheelchair.

Hospital staff put Jade into a waiting ambulance and she was then driven away.

Her publicist Max Clifford said: 'In terms of her spirit, she has been very brave and positive.'

'It is only when she is in considerable pain that she has been sobbing. Other than that, she has been very upbeat and is looking forward to the christening of her sons.'

Goody is said to be planning the christening for her sons Bobby, 5 and Freddie, 4, over the weekend but her attendance has now been put in doubt.

Goody has been given weeks to live after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Goody was taken to the hospital last night after she complained of unrelenting pain while at St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood, near Harlow, Essex.

Goody's spokesman, Max Clifford, said she had been told an operation to remove a blockage from her bowel might be needed to relieve the pain.

Today he said it was not yet clear whether Goody would undergo surgery.

Her pain had been managed overnight and she had her first good night's sleep for several days, he said.

"I spoke to her earlier and she was feeling better this morning after a good night's sleep.

"She was waiting to find out what's going to happen," Mr Clifford said.

He confirmed that Goody had left the hospital and said his "instinct" was that she was being taken to the oncology unit at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, also in south west London, for further assessment.

The 27-year-old Big Brother star was taken to St Clare Hospice on Friday night and had been due to return to her home in nearby Upshire today.

Doctors have told Goody that she has weeks to live after her cervical cancer spread to her liver, groin and bowel.

Mr Clifford said Goody's sons, Bobby, five, and Freddie, four, may visit their mother in hospital today if she is well enough.

Goody and her sons are due to be christened next Saturday at a church close to her home.

She also plans to record a television interview with Piers Morgan for ITV early this week, Mr Clifford said.

Her husband, Jack Tweed, 21, appeared before magistrates in Epping, Essex, today to face a charge of assault. He denies the charge.
