At a whopping 21st, Alison, 42, was so big she burst – developing three hernias that made her bulging belly so big she looked pregnant. Eventually she had surgery to repair the hernias, as well as a gastric sleeve, but got an infection which left her in a coma for three weeks. Forced to relearn to walk and talk, Alison is now 9st lighter and says she wouldn’t change a thing – as she’s finally rid of her ‘baby bump’. She told her story in That’s Life magazine.
