Woman dies after undergoing weight loss surgery for her wedding

Jana was supposed to get married on June 29.

Islamabad (Pakistan Point News – 4th December, 2018) A 25-year-old girl died after going through a weight loss surgery for her wedding.

Jana Moreels felt sick two weeks after the surgery and went into coma.

Jana's mother, Christelle while talking to media said, "It was during that night that she began to have back pain. We thought she just had taken it a bit too far with drinking. Jana continued to be unwell and her body rejected a donor liver. Four days later the doctors also noticed a leak to the attachment of the gastric bypass which inflamed her abdominal cavity."

"Jana underwent a heavy surgery. On November 23 Jana got for the second time a new liver. Her body was however so weakened that she did not survive the surgery. At 2am at night we drove in all haste to the hospital. We were unable to say our final goodbyes. She died on November 24, the day she was supposed to choose her wedding dress in her hometown in Belgium," Jana's mother added.

Jana was supposed to get married on June 29.

"Everything was already arranged. She only needed to choose her dress. Yet instead of choosing her wedding dress, we stood that day at her death bed."

Her father Laurent said he felt the need to share Jana's story to the world to warn people before undergoing a cosmetic surgery for which there is no medical need.
