Beth Chapman reportedly ignores doctor's advice and returns home after surgery, husband says
Despite her doctors' orders, Beth Chapman returned to her home in Colorado alongside her faithful husband, Duane Chapman.
On Sunday, December 1, 2018, Duane, the star of "Dog, The Bounty Hunter," announced that it was Beth's decision to leave the hospital because she wanted to be more comfortable.
As reported by Us Magazine, the details were shared by Duane in an exclusive interview, during which he also talked about her throat cancer.

STAYING IN THE HOSPITAL WAS NOT AN OPTION
"Beth slept for almost an entire day, and she was more comfortable."
Beth and Duane truly believed that they had overcome the worst, but being told that her cancer had returned was a jab in the gut.
According to Duane, the doctors explained that the disease 'follows the path of least resistance, so it goes downward,' and that Beth's lung was full of water.
THE NEXT FLIGHT HOME
The 51-year-old had to be rushed to the hospital after a lump that grew overnight and was making it hard for her to breath. Beth was supposed to stay at the hospital but her desire to go back home was stronger.
Duane shared that his wife can now breathe just fine and that she had to be transported to and from the airport in a wheelchair. Upon landing in Colorado, they were met by friends who took them home.
"Beth slept for almost an entire day, and she was more comfortable, then she got up and she was trying to do things around the house, trying to do laundry and wash the dishes, I said to her, ‘I’ve done all that, don’t worry.’”

A SWEET WELCOME RECEPTION
When they got home, Duane claimed to have found 20 deer in their backyard, which they usually to feed; to him, that was a sign from Mother Nature, as if she was welcoming them back home.
Beth and Dog have been together for 30 years and this will just be another battle that they will have to fight together, after overcoming several painful moments such as the death of their daughter, Barbara, in 2006, who perished in a car crash.
