It was called "her husband":
A 32-year-old woman, who was repeatedly told she needed to lose weight, soon discovered why years of dieting simply didn't work; she was carrying around a 93 pound growth on her ovary.
Taquela Hilton said she struggled with weight for 12 years and during that time, the cyst was never diagnosed.
"I quit going to doctors, every one I went to told me to lose weight and I had tried every diet I could think of," said Hilton.
. . .
Desperate for answers, Dr. Cameron, scheduled exploratory surgery.
During the surgery doctors made the shocking discovery, a 93 pound benign ovarian cyst.
Okay, we've all heard this story before-- person thinks they're fat, instead has a tumor, tumor is removed, and voila, they're not fat anymore.
But here's where this story goes off the rails and makes no sense to me:
Since the surgery three weeks ago Taquela has lost 137 pounds. Doctors said her health is improving daily and she now weighs 359 pounds.
Hmmm. I'm no good at math, but something tells me that if you weigh 403 pounds AFTER you have a 93 pound tumor removed, your weight problem probably doesn't have much to do with the benign growth inside your body.
I'm just sayin'. . .
