Ever since 1000-Lb. Sisters has aired on TLC, fans have wanted Tammy Slaton to improve. Over the course of three seasons, viewers have seen her make progress only to take two steps backward.
Things finally seemed to change at the end of season three, when Tammy chose to enter rehab. According to rumors, she made great progress in rehab and even managed to qualify for bariatric surgery, which would take place in June 2022.
What Happened To Tammy Slaton On ‘1000-Lb. Sisters’?
After months away from social media, Tammy Slaton has finally re-emerged. Fans asked for weight loss updates, but she revealed that her contract with TLC won’t let her release anything. Tammy appeared in various TikToxes with her shoulders up and fans didn’t think she had actually lost much weight. But even then, sources came out and said that a bariatric procedure is still in the works.
But now The Sun claims they’ve spoken to an insider source who says Tammy is still on track to get the bariatric surgery she wants. It’s just going to be delayed for a few more weeks.
The Sun did not say what scheduling conflicts arose. But if all goes according to plan, Tammy Slaton could very well get the surgery in the last week of July 2022.
At the end of season 3 of 1000-Lb. Sisters Season 3, Tammy Slaton had a serious medical emergency and had to return to hospital. Doctors put a breathing tube in her, which she still wears today. Some fans wondered if she would be able to get rid of the trach if she had bariatric surgery.
In one Reddit thread, users wondered why Tammy still needed fine if she was in better shape. Apparently the answer is quite simple. One Redditor replied that once a person is on the fine, it is incredibly difficult to get off. It’s likely that the TLC star will still need the fine until the end of the operation. Ultimately, it comes down to what his healthcare professionals think is best for him.
