The legs of this woman keep growing and already have become larger than any limbs you have ever seen. She’s is about to marry, but first, learn what she has to do to stop the legs’ growth.
Her name is Katia Page, and she is 36. The condition she suffers from is called Lipoedema. Her lower part of the body keeps growing and accumulating fat in it.
Now they have grown to be 4 feet wide each! The bride is getting liposuctions to get rid of the excessive fat in her limbs. This has already proved to be effective, and the size of the legs decreased a bit.
The situation is far-reaching. Fat is the killer and here is what her doctor says:
“If Katia has no surgery, if she had no bandaging, if she had no will to move - Katia would be dead very soon.”
Here is what the lady says about it:
“The swelling was at one point so bad that my ankles would be literally hanging all the way over my foot. My biggest fear is becoming immobile because once I can't move, I know this disease will progress, and I could lose my life.”
People think her diet is extremely unhealthy to make her look like that, but that’s not true. Only a few of us know of this condition and how dangerous it is.
The bride says:
“I'm engaged, and we're going to get married soon. And to be honest with you, he loves me anyway, but I just want to look my best.”
The disease affected the woman back in her girlhood. She was just 7 when the first signs appeared, but when she turned 20 it got appalling.
“It's bad when your calf is bigger than your waistline. One calf - not both - but one.”
Still, the woman finds strength to enjoy her life. She wants to get married and get back to normal with her feet gradually being decreased in size by the surgeries. Let’s wish her luck.
