Scots teacher who shed 10 STONE after gastric Sleeve operation
AS John Naples Campbell takes a seat on a bus, he always worries about taking up too much space.
When he walks through a doorway, he always turns his body side-on.
But drama teacher John is far from overweight. Eighteen months ago, he had gastric surgery which he is sure saved his life.
The gastric sleeve operation – in which John had 85 per cent of his stomach removed – saw him lose nearly 10st in around 10 months and drop from a clothes size extra large to extra small.
But while John was delighted to lose weight so quickly, mentally, he is taking a lot longer to adjust and still feels fat.
