Oh No Alex!!!

Postby N_Castle07 ... unComments

SNOOKER legend Alex Higgins is too ill for a life-saving operation to give him new teeth.
Doctors told the frail former World Champion, who lost his teeth battling throat cancer, he must build up his health before risking surgery.

But 61-year-old Higgins can only eat mashed food and his weight had already plummeted to seven stone.

Dentist Dr Daniel Simon said last night: "It's a vicious circle.

"He can't get better and have the new teeth unless he eats and gets back to health. But he can't eat without the teeth."

He added: "Right now he is in a very weak situation in his general health, he is not feeling very well, his lungs are not good.

"These are all complications for a general anaesthetic."

Higgins, who blew a £3million fortune as he battled booze problems, failed medical tests after flying to Marbella in Spain for the specialist treatment. Star pals had raised £20,000 for the surgery, which involves implanting bolts to his jaw for the dentures.

Higgins snubbed a free hotel to stay at a pal's pad in nearby Cabopino. He spent most of the week sipping rum in a bar and chain-smoking cigarettes.

A source said: "The whole week I barely saw him eat a morsel of food. He was quite rude and insulting to people who tried to help him. It's sad."

Sonny has already published this ... and it's exactly what I feared. He isn't fit for the surgery and he is not helping his own case neither.
