1,200 pound man seeks life-saving surgery in Italy

1200 lbsA Mexican man who at 550 kg (1,200 lb) is possibly the heaviest person in the world hopes to travel to Italy for a life-saving operation to shed weight.

Manuel Uribe, bedridden for the past five years, cannot stand on his own and will need a special flight to take him from Monterrey, Mexico to Modena, where a surgical team has offered to perform an intestinal bypass free of charge.

"I can't walk. I'm can't leave my bed," the 40-year-old Uribe, who weighs the same as five baby elephants said in a recent telephone interview.

you fat ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. i have absolutely no sympathy for you... why in the world would you eat so much to a point you get yourself that FAT.. we're not seeing a 300 or 500 pound guy we're looking at a *1,200* guy.. have you seen how many poor kids out there without food why would you take advantage of government aids.. just to make yourself feel better because your depress..maybe if your not so selfish you wouldn't be so FAT.. the government wouldn't have to waste money hiring a nurse to take care of your fat ass. just go kill yourself instead of wasting others time, energy, and money to get you skinny. it's NEVER going to happen fat ass.

Okay, to the person above me...that is probably the meanest, most horrific thing I have ever seen someone write. Did you know that some people have a disease where they compulsively over eat. So don't be so quick to judge people, and maybe try looking in the mirror once in a while. No one's perfect. So get over yourself.

And to the 1,200lb man...good luck with getting the surgery, if you have't already had it, and I have some sympathy for you.

To the person that said that he was a fat *ass*I think that that was really cruel give that pore guy a brake he alresdy has enough trouble with having to be the fattest man in the world. I don't think he needs any more cridisism. He can't walk and he is only 40 years old you should have more feelings for ather people!

ummm....ok, to all the people who are obviously uneducated and rude,i hope you all gain five hundred pounds and wonder what happened to you, because this guy is a human being and deserves a little more respect than that!!! HE does have eating disorder and also a disorder where his body stores fluid(that means water for the stupid people who tend to post comments) in pockets.. like the one on his leg..Seriously you all need to learn a little manners!! I say good luck to the fat man and hope rude people stop posting ridiculous comments!!

To the person who posted the "you fat ass!!" crap: I hope someday you realize just how pathetic you have proven yourself to be. You are obviously dumber than this guy is overweight. How does it feel to be THAT stupid? Think about this, you moron, that guy can lose the weight, but you can not lose the stupid.

I feel sorry for you because I know how you feel. Maybe I am not that heavy, but I am over weight. I have tried everything to lose weight. I feel that if the doctors can help you then go for it. This is not your fault. I am trying to lose weight and I hope maybe someday that I will be where I need to be, so God bless you I hope you get here you need to be. A friend.

That doesn't makes no kinds of sense that yall is picking on him just because of how big he is.

Idiots- not only does it not say he is a compulsive eater- nobody ever overeats themselves to 1,200 lbs. Compulsive eaters get fat, but that is NOT OVEREATING- its forcibly feeding yourself everything in sight while you can still move. Fortunately, this fella cant move anymore. Gravity saved him from himself.

why would anyone let them selfs get that big...? i think once you hit about 500lbs you should try to start losing (at the most). other wise your taking your own rights to live away, just like SMOKERS! im gona assume most of the people that are pokin fun of this guy are smokers... since most people are... i hope you get cancer and have to travel your airless lungs around the world to get your life saved for you to kill yourself again.

it looks like the people that are makin fun are... well... retards... i feel some sympathy for you... cause you didnt make it outa high school... and you thought the fat man was wasting money when your ass is on welfare....

i could go on because im uber bored right now...

Your a bunch of fuckin cunts fuck all of you who have no sympathy I hope next time you take a bite of food you all choke and die and by food I bet next thing you all are eating is a big fat sweaty cock

If you have sympathy for the fat man, check it, because he did this to himself. If you are disgusted by this fat man, you should check it also. Cause from your comments, you're equally disgusting. Personally, I feel sorry for you fat man, but I will not mourn your loss to humanity, as you are a genetic abherration that we are better left without. Instead of surgery, see a psychiatrist. For everyone that sympathized, please put down your own fork before you become the fat man. This is a warning to us all.

This is to the people who have no regards for a person's feelings : You need to grow the hell up, and if any of you where actually intelligent you would be aware that America as well as some other countries have become obese. With that being said do you know why? Probably not since you all are retards. It is actually do to the food that we digest today, such as Mcdonalds, pizza, chips, and pop. Do you realize that are snack variety goes on and on. Not to say that he has no blame because he does, yes maybe he shouldnt have ate so much, but who are we to judge and ridicule people in his state. My advice to you is grow up and look at the whole world not just a single man who has been thrown on the web for publicity. If not for him do it for yourself. Cause what goes around comes around and im a firm believer on that.
