Washington (ANI): Cancer-stricken Patrick Swayze has reportedly refused to undergo life-saving lung surgery, thus prompting fears that he is close to the end of his cancer battle. According to the National Enquirer, the doctors of 'Dirty Dancing' star, who is suffering from pancreatic cancer, have been forced to halt his chemotherapy treatment because he's suffering a lung infection.

It says that Swayze was offered surgery to remove part or all of the infected lung, but he turned down the risky procedure. "The infection hadn't responded to treatment, and breathing became so hard for him that his family and friends, and his doctors were desperate to provide any relief," Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.

"But after months of painful treatments and fighting so hard just to get up in the mornings, he felt he had done all he could," the source added.

A friend said: "He's always fought this disease on his terms, and a long, painful recovery was not how he wanted to spend his last days."
