I was 15.” Henderson-McGregor weighed 168kg, had type 2 diabetes and was waking several times a night because she had stopped breathing due to sleep apnoea. She had been diagnosed with hyperinsulaemia, the over- production of insulin, which may have contributed to her constant and overwhelming desire to eat. Henderson- McGregor lost about 70 kg after the surgery but developed an eating disorder after becoming scared to eat. “My mental state got out of hand because I thought, ‘if I eat I’m going to get fat’.” After the surgery, she was not able to play sport as she was told the staples could rupture. As an 18-year-old, she said the operation restricted her ability to socialise because her friends wanted to drink and eat food she was not able to.
