Okay in all seriousness, I feel bad for this guy but let's keep this in check. I've been in health care for a long time and the worst part about this is IT DIDN'T FREAKIN HAPPEN OVERNIGHT!!!. When you first notice something that shouldn't be there, see a doctor. Whether it be a bump, lump, mass, or stump. If it don't fit... you must have em look at it!
Okay, so much for my weak attempt at rhyming. Anyhow, we used to get patients over 300 pounds maybe a couple times a month or so in the early 90's and thought how unusual. Well, now people come in weighing over 400, 500lbs. several times a week. It's sickening in that it takes a long time to develop this and my point is don't let it get to that point. When you can't see your unit or your feet, I think that's God's way of tellin'
you "hey, lay off dem twinkies". Anyone concerned should have intervened. Okay, I'm done ranting now. I do hope he'll be okay.
