Old water damage in bathroom

Ok i'm not sure if this is the right place, but i removed a vanity in my bathroom and found out the side of the shower the wood is rotted as you can see, and then the sink you can see there is an area where they patched but you can see the wood is black or has some black on it.. I spoke with the unit owner below and they said awhile back they had a leak in the shower pan and may sink who knows, it looks like they may have fixed the shower pan leak, but not replaced any of the wood....

I'm a little worried i don't want to do major demo i cant really afford it, to be honest, after purchasing this condo.

Any ideas would help me out a lot. thank you.

I'd be concerned about the damage I see to the framing. IMO there is no choice but to open it up and see how extensive the wood damage is! If you can do all the labor, the cost shouldn't be that bad.

It's hard to say without opening it up. If you are lucky you can just cut or chisel out the rot and scab new lumber in. My biggest concern is insect damage.
