New Series

THURSDAY 9th April

In this fascinating British documentary series, we follow the stories of several people whose only option to loose weight is to undergo gastric bypass surgery.

Gary Buckingham is turning to gastric bypass surgery as a last resort, he’s tried and failed to lose weight and at 26 stone, his health is starting to suffer. His biggest fear is that he won’t live to see his children grow up.

But will Gary go ahead with surgery when he’s told on the morning of his operation that he has a 1 in 10 chance of not pulling through? 

We also meet a man whose life was saved by gastric bypass surgery – at 46 stone, Ricky Carter was so incapacitated by his size, that he had to carry his 8 stone stomach on a trolley.
