‘I only wanted to lose weight but I almost lost my life’: 22-stone woman, 35, nearly died after a gastric sleeve …

An obese woman claims she was given just days to live after she developed deadly sepsis from a gastric sleeve operation.

Laura Battrum, 35, from Birmingham, was severely overweight at 22 stone (308lbs) when she decided weight-loss surgery was her only option.

Due to her suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the NHS agreed to pay for the operation, which took place last January. 

Thrilled, Miss Battrum thought she was one step closer to her dream of starting a family with her partner of eight years Steve, 37. 

Instead, she claims she developed sepsis and was given three days to live before being put in an induced coma for a month.

After spending a total of four months in hospital, Miss Battrum is finally back at home. But the health and social assessor is now forced to use a colostomy bag, and battles mobility problems and fatigue every day.
