Dominique’s Health Issues
Dominique of 600 Pound Mom had put on a lot of weight and needed to be under 500 lbs. to get the surgery done. They sent three ambulances and three crew members to get her to the hospital. She couldn’t move at all and needed their help to get out of the house. She hadn’t been out of her house in months. There was a strict weight limit of 500 lbs. to get the surgery that she wanted and Dominique had to get down to that weight before she could have it done. This wasn’t an easy task for her.
The surgeon revealed that some doctors would go ahead and do the surgery if you weighed that much, but he wasn’t comfortable doing it. He wanted her to get on a diet and try to lose weight to get down to 500 lbs. She has had her hopes on surgery for years and she needed to diet to lose the weight. When talking to the doctor, Dominique broke down in tears over her weight and what was going on.
