Summary
After a troubled childhood, years of yo-yo dieting, and adult obesity that topped 240 pounds, Marie-France Magnin opted for risky gastric bypass surgery. This program reveals the extent of the risk, describing frightening complications associated with the procedure. Interviews with Magnin and her family members highlight the operation's physical and psychological benefits and how easily they overshadow its dangers. 3-D animation outlines the anatomical goals of the procedure as well as its nutritional consequences: a vitamin B deficiency that must be constantly managed with supplements and injections. Having studied the Magnin case, a prominent neurologist explains how the vitamin deficiency led to paralysis.
