    I thought that Punki, but then I realised we don't know anything else, maybe she was very short or something.

    It was very sad to read this, she did not have a bypass she had a band which is a less invasive than a bypass.
    At the end of the day any surgery carries risks and she did have a hernia repair as well so it was not just a gastric band opp, she was obviously under for longer than she would of been for just a band and she was also diabetic.
    It does not give info to why she was bleeding internally but that must of been the reason that caused her to have a heart attack.

    it says 'He said Mrs Alderson's body mass index (BMI), which determines whether a patient has a healthy body weight by measuring their height and weight, was 44, classing her as morbidly obese.

    when i was 16 stone my bmi was 35 an im 5'7 so she must have been short!

    its sooo sad poor woman. My thoughts r with her family tooo
