‘1000-Lb. Sisters’ Tammy Slaton ‘Thankful To Be Alive’ Amid Weight Loss Progress

“1,000-lb. Sisters” star Tammy Slaton is feeling grateful about her health journey. The 36-year-old spoke out to People about how she’s feeling after undergoing weight loss surgery in 2022 after suffering a near-death experience that same year. I wised up and got my surgery. I was able to make my lungs strong enough to get my trach out, and then recently the doctor cleared me to be off my oxygen machine during the daytime. Now I only wear my oxygen at night, along with my BiPap machine. I monitor my oxygen levels throughout the day and keep my machine on hand in case I need it. … I’m feeling great! I’m thankful to be alive, and it’s fun to be progressing as much as I am,” she told the publication.
