VH1 Star Real

My Cancer is Almost Gone

'It's a Miracle'

12/20/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1220-ahmad-tmz-hospital
The star of VH1's "Real Chance of Love" went under the knife Wednesday night to remove huge chunks of cancer from his colon ... and TMZ has learned the operation was a guarded success.

A rep for Ahmad Givens a.k.a. Real tells us ... when doctors began operating Wednesday night they thought he had colon cancer.  Turns out it was stage 4 rectal cancer and they were able to remove it all.

But there was another problem.  Real also had 7 tumors in his liver.  Doctors removed all but a small portion that was deep in the liver.  The docs are hopeful ... with radiation they can eliminate the remnants of his liver cancer.

Bottom line .... going into the surgery, it looked like Real was a goner, but now he has a good, fighting chance of survival.

In the world of medicine, that's what you call a successful operation.

-@ inthezone, cancer doesn't make you lose your hair, Chemo does. Chemo treatments usually start after the surgery. Best of luck to Real.

So, a team of doctors with decades of training spend many hours operation on hi, and the conclusion is "it's a miracle". Really? It's called medicine.

I was just thinking about Ahmad yesterday, wondering how he was doing. This young man is really a fighter. I hope he lives a long life.

Unfortunately stage IV rectal cancer has a 5-year survival rate of around 5%. But my uncle has survived pancreatic cancer for more than 15 years now, so if he keeps fighting he might beat the beast!
