My 600-Lb Life star Coliesa McMillian dead at 41 after weight loss surgery complications | The Sun
MY 600-Lb Life star Coliesa McMillian is dead at age 41 after weight loss surgery complications.
Coliesa’s daughter Hannah revealed the sad news after her mother passed away on September 22.
She captioned a series of photos with her mother on Facebook: “Last night you gained your wings omg [you know] how hard this is for us! But you was tired of fighting but I’m not mad at you. You held off this long. I just never knew this soon you would leave.
“All I can think about now is making you happy and being the best mom to my little boy and make Sadie happy! Just look at the good memories we had and we have a lot bc you were a character and you about to make those folks laugh up there!”
She ended the post by calling her mother her “guardian angel.”
In April, The Sun reported Coliesa was out of the ICU and was recovering after she was placed on life support following weight loss surgery.
Hannah told The Sun at the time: “She’s doing fine she just has to learn how to do it all again. She was [in the ICU], but not anymore. She’s in the hospital still but she’s doing a lot better.”
On Coliesa’s March 2020 episode, Dr. Nowzaradan performed surgery on her after she began experiencing stomach pains.
Although she had not lost enough weight to be approved for the surgery, Dr. Now performed the operation because he feared she could have a life-threatening intestinal blockage.
After gastric sleeve surgery, Coliesa, who started the show at 643 pounds, lost 150 lbs.
But when the My 600-lb Life episode aired, her niece revealed over social media that she flatlined and was on life support.
Coliesa’s niece Blair explained she started hemorrhaging when a row of stitches from the procedure popped.
She then became septic, which is a life-threatening infection.
She was on a ventilator for two weeks and in a medically induced coma.
Funeral services will be held in Louisiana on September 24th and 25th.
