Man weighing 1,200 pounds seeks life-saving surgery in Italy


Uribe's case puzzles doctors since his cholesterol and blood-sugar levels are normal, despite his extreme obesity.

"His heart works very well. He has some respiratory difficulty because of his obesity, but in strict terms, he's well," said Marco Anibal Rodriguez Vargas, the director of hospitals in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon.

I feel sorry for the guy and am glad that he can get help, just hope he survives the surgery! I still can't help but wonder what loving soul continued to bring him food and who held the gun to his head to make him eat it all? It seems that his friends, if they were true friends would have said stop, you are killing yourself!
