    Former world's fattest man begs for NHS operation to remove folds of skin after losing 40 STONE


    • 'I feel like I've been left high and dry,' says 30st man after 30,000 NHS operation
    • NHS says Mr Mason must maintain stable weight before they consider cosmetic surgery to remove flaps of skin
    • Over the past 15 years it is estimated Mr Mason's care bill has cost taxpayers around 1million

    A British man who at one time was the fattest in the world is pleading with the NHS to remove unsightly flaps of flesh after he managed to lose more than half of his body weight.
    Paul Mason, 50, who weighed 60 stone two years ago, underwent a gastric bypass after he was told he otherwise faced certain death.

    But he has been left with rolls of unsightly excess skin after the extreme weight loss and now needs an operation to remove the flaps hanging from his stomach, arms and legs.

    Slimmed down: Paul Mason now weighs 30st instead of 70st but wants surgery to remove rolls of unsightly fat

    Back on his feet: Mr Mason is now no longer bed bound, but still requires walking sticks




    NHS bosses have refused to perform cosmetic surgery, insisting that he needs to maintain a stable weight before it can be considered

    However, NHS bosses have refused to perform cosmetic surgery, insisting that he needs to maintain a stable weight before it can be considered.
    But Mr Mason, who can now leave the house in a motorised wheelchair, said: 'I just need a little bit more help. I feel like I have been just left high and dry.
    'I need this operation to be able to get my life back, to be able to get back into society. It is stopping me living a reasonable life.'

    The former postman, who weighed 70st - or half a tonne - at his heaviest, used to consume 20,000 calories a day, 10 times the normal for the average man. He said his binge eating was spurred by heartbreak in his twenties at the time of his father's death and a deterioration in his mother's health.
    He quit his job as a postman when his weight prevented him from completing his deliveries. He was transferred to a sorting office, where he worked until 1989 when he was sacked and imprisoned for six months for stealing from customers' letters.

    Paul Mason, pictured in 2009, was airlifted to hospital for an operation to reduce his weight


    The former postman used to consume 20,000 calories a day -10 times the normal for the average man - and sometimes went naked to avoid having to get dressed

    Mr Mason spent around 30,000 a year on food and sometimes went naked to avoid having to get dressed.

    Then in 2009, Mr Mason, from Ipswich, underwent a 30,000 operation on the NHS at Chichester Hospital which drastically reduced the amount he could eat.
    Now his frame has shrunk so much that he has been left with swathes of loose skin.
    Surgery can be used to remove the excess skin but as the treatment is for cosmetic and not clinical reasons, it is not automatically available on the NHS.


    Mr Mason has been left with rolls of unsightly excess skin on his arms, legs and stomach



    It will cost Mr Mason around 1,500 to 6,000 if he wants to have the surgery privately depending on the amount of flesh that needs to be removed

    Mr Mason will have to pay around 1,500 to 6,000 if he wants to have the surgery privately depending on the amount of flesh that needs to be removed.

    His care bill costs taxpayers an estimated 100,000 a year and it is believed to have topped 1million over the past 15 years
    On one occasion firefighters had to be called out to demolish the front wall of his former home so they could drive a fork lift truck inside to lift him out and put him into an ambulance when he needed a hernia operation in 2002.




    Now and then: Paul Mason says he is desperate for plastic surgery. He is pictured at 18-months-old (right)


    HOW THE WORLD'S FATTEST MAN SHED THE WEIGHT: REVISED DIET


    PAUL'S OLD DIET

    Breakfast: A packet of bacon, four sausages, four eggs, bread and hash browns.

    Lunch: Four portions of fish and chips with two kebabs.
    Dinner: A takeaway such as a curry or pizza

    Snacks: Pastries, chocolate, crisps

    (He would spend 10-15 per day on chocolate and 60 a day on takeaways)

    PAUL'S NEW DIET
    Breakfast: Toast

    Lunch or dinner: Now he has just one main meal a day usually consisting of lean meat fresh fruit and vegetables




    But Mr Mason, who has a a new target weight of 23 stone, is angered by the NHS's decision.

    He said: 'My consultant says he's always seen there is a skinny man waiting to get out but it is so frustrating to have got so far and just be at the final hurdle.
    'I have times when I just sit and cry but then I think "I'm not going to let it get me down."'
    Health bosses have remained firm about their decision, stating that Mr Mason, who also suffered a heart attack following his gastric bypass, must wait before he has further cosmetic surgery.
    An NHS Suffolk spokesperson said: 'Before a patient has an operation it is important to take a balanced decision that is in the best interest of that patient.

    'In cases like this NHS Suffolk has a panel of people - including clinicians - who decide whether the patient should have such an operation.

    'A patient must have a stable weight before he or she is considered.'

    Mr Mason also claimed that the NHS failed to help him as his size soared and instead of receiving a treatment programme to manage his weight, he said he was told in 1996: 'Ride your bike more.'

    He now hopes to learn how to drive and to use his experience to help others with eating disorders, including anorexia.
    He has also set up his own craft company to produce Christmas tree decorations and birthday cards.

    The heaviest man of all time was American John Minnoch, who weighed 100.2 stone. He died in 1983 aged 42.
    TWO NURSES TAKE FOUR HOURS TO WASH BRITAIN'S FATTEST MAN

    Two female carers take up to four hours to wash Paul Mason because his size makes it impossible for him to clean himself.
    The women, who visit him three times a day, have to apply cream to every inch of his bulging body to stop chafing.
    He manages to soap his upper body himself and the nurses wipe him down.

    They used to look after him from 8am until 8pm but Ipswich NHS were forced to axe the service because of cutbacks.
    Mr Mason, who wears incontinence pads, has not walked properly since 2000 and wears size XXXXXXXXL clothes.

    Does this bitch ever stop complaining and shifting the blame? He blamed the NHS for his weight gain too, back when he was advised to exercise more.

    Now his life [or whatever remains of his miserable existence] has been saved by the NHS and this bitch complains again. The rule you must maintain your weight loss for a period to time before the taxpayers' will pay for skin removal has been in place for YEARS... but nooooo - this whiny flabby prick has the chutzpah to claim he's been "left hugh and dry"? Ungrateful burke.
    Tiene razon, y gracias por su opinion. Now go fuck yourself.

    His new diet seems a bit.. anorexic. And I use that term loosely because his diet before wasn't exactly a great standard against which to measure appropriate food intake. But still.

    That is not the recommended diet I have ever seen following gastric by-pass. Weird.

    Daily Mail just makes crap up. It's not like it's a reliable source of information. It's all about the freak pointing.

    In the pictures of him at his home it looks like he is sitting on one of those "Puppy Pads" that people put down when they have a new pet who is not yet potty-trained and they want to prevent it from soiling the carpet.

    This man is disgusting and he needs to take responsibility for the choices that HE made that led him to this point instead of constantly pointing fingers at the NHS and others.

    Given that if he spread his cheeks it would look like someone doing the same to a peanut butter sandwich, wouldn't you have one under him?
