A few days after Samantha contacted Dr Nowzaradan she started having stomach pain which became severe.She called the doctor about the pain and he advised her to see a doctor immediately At the hospital they diagnosed Samantha with kidney stones As she was too fat to be operated on safely, they gave her medicine and sent her home. Back home she has to climb the stairs to get to her apartment and it takes five men to get her there Her daughter there, waiting for her It was a scary few days for her, she thought her body was going decomposed

She promises him that when she gets home she won’t eat pastries She says she can’t die, her daughter needs her He tells her he sent a diet plan by email, but it didn’t work She says they put her on a 2100 calorie a day diet He tells her that she eats between 10 and 12 thousand calories a day He tells her it is is impressive that she can still stand up with almost a thousand pounds She says she knows he says even though she knows she continues to eat and gain weight He tells her that she cannot travel for the seeing without medical care He tells her he has a plan to follow She has done everything to change her eating habits and lose weight

He’ll send her a diet, 1200 calories a day If she follows it, she can lose 250 pounds in two months If she’s bedridden the problem because worse She’s nervous and scared He tells her to try doing the first steps she needs to lose at least 350 pounds to be able to tolerate the trip If she doesn’t lose weight he can’t help her She says it’s going to be very painful, food is her whole life and she doesn’t know who she is without her She apologizes to him, he tells her not to His life is more important than food, and if she doesn’t make the changes, the food will kill her He tells her to be get up every day and walk He wants her to be healthy to travel to see him The end of the call The doctor is worried Samantha has gained so much weight as they try to find transportation for her Having a thousand pounds is as far as she can push her body

Samantha has been working hard to make progress At the moment they are working on mobility, PT is helping her and she is doing a little more each time The first few days she was downhearted but she knows she is strengthening her endurance Food is tough, she has only lost ten kilos in recent weeks Giving up food is a big step, she is always happy to go in the right direction If she continues to be well, she will be able to go home soon she She gives him everything, she knows she still has 240 pounds to lose She’s so motivated, she knows it’s now or never

Month 4: Samantha is out and going home, she lost 40 pounds She’s nervous because she won’t have all the help she gave in the hospital She’s walking away now, she did making progress She’s upstairs and happy It wasn’t as hard this time to bring her home Bella’s boyfriend Ivan is also there to help her and he and Bella have a while to go. make sure she’s okay By the time she walks in she orders some food She orders chicken strips, ribs, burgers, fries, strawberry lemonade and a melted lava chocolate cake Then she ask Bella and Ivan if they want something

Samantha dieted a bit, then other times she thinks that if she’s going to die anyway why not just make herself happy It’s so hard for Bella to see her mom like that, that breaks her heart She doesn’t know how to describe her emotion She’s excited, but uncertain She thinks the best place for her mother might be in the hospital She’s so scared that her mother is having suicidal thoughts on her own At first , everything was fine, then things went south real fast It’s really hard for Bella to watch Samantha spiral down Samantha starts to cry and she’s really negative Bella yells at her, tells her to stop and find the positive She goes on to say that with her negative state of mind it is difficult to be with her

Month 5: The last month has been tough, harder than Samantha thought Bella and Ivan still stay with her, but she thinks she’s closer to being able to take care of herself She can’t wait to ‘go to the hospital and get her weight checked, she feels like she starved her She diets for the most part, but gives herself treats and a cheat day once a week

Shortly after Samantha returned to hospital for her weigh-in, a nationwide quarantine was issued in response to COVID-19 For the next five months, she remained in the hospital because, while she was alone her weight had increased to 974 pounds Her highest weight to date As a result, Samantha’s health began to decline and Dr Nowzaradan feared he would not survive for long without extreme intervention He worked with a colleague in Denver, Dr Heydari, to perform a round gastric in a last ditch effort to keep Samantha from overeating in the hospital

Dr Heydari was able to perform the sleeve and it has now been three months since the operation The weight loss surgery saved Samantha’s life She twists her knee on returning to hospital and cannot return to the home now She weighs 638 pounds This is the lowest she has been in fifteen years She is miserable and depressed and doesn’t know how to handle life without food If food makes her happy, the happier she is and she gets better feels incredibly sad

In Houston, Dr Nowzaradan has been working for months with Dr Heydari for Samantha He thinks that if he hadn’t helped Samantha she would be dead in a month He calls his colleague to talk about Samantha who tells him that ‘she is doing great She is really motivated and does PT Although the weight loss has slowed in the last few weeks He says he would like to transfer her to a rehab center for some extra help She has a lot of problems that she will have to solve The two doctors think she needs psychotherapy before going home so that she does not gain weight

Dr Heydari visits Samantha, he tells her that she is doing very well and moving forward, she is going to rehab She needs physical therapy and behavior therapy to not gaining weight Her final weight before leaving is 616 pounds He tells her he is proud of her and that she did a great job They will only be able to keep Samantha in rehab for about a month She really needs help to overcome this; weight loss will slow down and they want her to have the support of a behavior specialist Her doctors fear that if she doesn’t deal with her emotional issues she will fail

Shortly after being admitted to rehab, Samantha developed an infection in her leg and had to be transferred to a treatment center Her doctors consult about Samantha Sr Heydari says she had a setback They had to remove some skin because of the infection and now she is facing wound issues It could take two months to heal She is much happier than before, she is quite motivated She’s on behavioral therapy every now and then But that’s the good thing, if she’s there longer with them they can work more with her Her current weight is a bit under 500 pounds, she lost around 500 pounds Now the fight is to keep Samantha in the right direction, to get her where she needs to be

Due to COVID-19 protocols filming Samantha was not an option However, Samantha self-shot the following message She is posting a video, she is beautiful and so positive
