Trying to find a reason and cure for a rare medical condition has been the goal of many doctors. Giant woman Tanya Angusâ€™s body just kept growing bringing her to almost 7 feet, gaining 336 lbs. Read more details and see the video about how medical professionals are curing her below the photo.
After an MRI, they found a brain tumor the size of an orange that was causing her body to overproduce the growth hormone. Her condition is called acromegaly and is fatal is they canâ€™t fix it. However they are hopeful that after two successful surgeries and the right medications she will no longer continue to grow.
Before the latest development by doctors, giant woman, which many are calling her, was not the only nickname Tanya got. As if the pain and agony in her body wasnâ€™t enough, people starting questioning her and making the condition more unbearable.
â€śIt sounds horrible, but someone at work actually asked me if I used to be a man. I’d started to look so big, it had raised doubts in people’s minds about what sex I was.â€ť
She has had so many difficulties, all because a part of her brain was infected. She was seemingly normal until her young adult life when she was over 6 feet tall and had size 12 feet. Along with her condition, comes major back problems and flu symptoms. Now, though, the surgeons have removed the mass and with her combination of pills her hormone levels are normal!
She will not turn back into a â€śnormalâ€ť sized person, but the continual growth she has gotten so used to will end. What once looked like the end for Angus may actually be something she can manage.
â€śThe doctors told me I would get to 30 years old before I died, I’m 31 now, now they’re saying I’ll get to 40, we’ll see, but I’ve made it this far, so I’m going to keep on pushing myself.â€ť
I wish her the best! You can check out a few more details and see some pictures here. Also, be sure to tell me what you think of the doctorâ€™s giant woman cure in the comment section, and donâ€™t miss the video that explain her life a little more.
