World’s Heaviest Man To Undergo Surgery

The world’s heaviest man is set to go under the knife for the second time in a bid to save his life – after shedding a staggering 35 stone. Juan Pedro Franco was officially named the heaviest man on Earth in December 2016, weighing in at a huge 1312 lbs, or 93st 10lbs.

In 2017, the 33-year-old, from Guadalajara, Mexico, underwent life-changing surgery to remove 75 percent of his stomach. Since then, he has been living on a strict diet and has lost an impressive 496lbs – but his weight is still putting him at extreme risk of cardiac arrest.
This means he needed further surgery.

Juan said: “The most important thing for me is to walk again. “I haven’t left the house for six years or even walked anywhere.”
Growing up, Juan was always overweight but a bus accident in his late teens left him in a coma and bed bound.

He said: “I broke half my body. I broke all of my right side ribs, leg, everything.”
Over the last couple of years, Juan’s weight-loss progress has been monitored by bariatric surgeon, Dr Jose Castaneda Cruz. He also carried out both surgeries.
