According to Kenneth Bromley statements in the documentary, he has been bed bound for four years. After being accepted as a gastric bypass patient at the Renaissance Hospital in Houston, a fire crew had to hammer down a wall in Kenneth’s house to get him out.
At Renaissance hospital, Kenneth was treated by the specialist team who treated Renee Williams. The first step in his treatment was a diet restricted to 1200 calories per day, which made him lose 12 stone in only 40 days.
After that, the doctors surgically remove two gigantic deposits of fatty tissue that have grown on each of his legs and are preventing his legs closing (and therefore make it impossible for him to stand up). The first surgery had to be curtailed after five hours, with only one fatty tumour - the one off his right leg - removed. This single tumour alone weighs 3 stone. After a few days recuperation, the doctors removed the remaining tumour from his left leg, along with fatty deposits from his abdomen, a total additional weight reduction of 15 stones.
After an additional 12 pounds loss by diet, Brumley was submited to a gastric bypass. Now he is 35 stone lighter (at 38 stone), and capable of standing up for a few minutes a day.
