Katrina Randall

The family of a morbidly obese Houston woman say she desperately needs a life-saving gallbladder operation — but doctors refuse to operate on her.

Katrina Randall, who weighs 740-pounds, was rushed to a hospital on Friday. A team of firefighters and first responders struggled to remove Randall from her home for the trip to the hospital.

Kenneth Randall, Katrina’s father, says everything she eats she brings back up. He says she needs a life-saving gallbladder operation, but doctors refuse to operate because she’s too obese to safely administer anesthesia during surgery. Too much anesthesia can kill her.

The symptoms of gallbladder disease include nausea and vomiting, fever, severe abdominal pain, and loss of appetite. Sometimes removing the gallbladder is required to alleviate the symptoms.

“We transferred her to the hospital hoping someone would actually take the next step in doing the gallbladder surgery,” Randall said.

“Most doctors say if she can’t walk in, we can’t see her,” said Kenneth Randall.

Dr. Younan Nowzaradan of the TLC show, My 600 Pound Life, explains that a patient like Katrina is too high risk even for emergency surgery.

“When putting a patient to sleep that is 700 pounds we have to breathe for them and sometimes they have heavy chests and its very difficult to breath for them,” said Nowzaradan.

Kenneth Randall knows the risk but he believes surgery is the only way to save Katrina’s life.

“In a city like Houston, as big of a medical field as this is, there’s no way she shouldn’t be able to get some kind of surgery done,” he said.

    What happens if the bad gallbladder goes untreated? Will she eventually
    lose her life?

    How did she get so big??
    She must have given up on life.
    They have a FDA pill you can swallow that expands in the stomach and stops you from overeating.

    Super sad. Can’t they make them sign a legal document stating that this is her condition and if she passes then you can’t sue? Or maybe they don’t want to spend the money on an attempt.

  • the guest

    Is it possible that if she can’t keep food down she will lose enough weight in a short amount of time to have a surgery? Maybe they can put her on fluids to accelerate weight loss? I wonder how much she has to weigh to safely have the surgery? 500lbs?

    Her family appears to love her very much. I hope they did not enable her morbid obesity.

    Good Morning Roses. Solange’s A Seat at the Table is free to Amazon Prime members. It’s nice, very nice.

  • hottlanta

    The fat around her body will eventually kill her as well. Her body is shutting down. With people wanting to sue for every little thing I don’t blame the hospital. I watch the show 600lb life and it breaks my heart and folks get mad at the doctor because they don’t so what they suppose to do for the surgery. He don’t play with them.

  • Renee Bee

    Oooh! Good morning and thank you.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Good am.

    Sidebar: For the people who aren’t fond of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, you have another option. Gary Johnson is running for POTUS and will be on the ballot for next month’s election. He is only polling at around 10% rn, which is why he has not been in the debates. He needed 25% of the vote for inclusion (or for Hillary and Donald to request his presence, which they didn’t do).

    Hope this helps some of you who are on the fence about who to vote for.

  • nicelyput32

    You’re welcome.

  • IAmLegend

    The same urgency the family is putting on this surgery should have been the same urgency they put on her to lose weight. Nobody gets that big on their own. The family made excuses for her and as she got bigger, enabled her to get even bigger and now it’s costing her life. Her big ass can’t walk so somebody is bringing her food and pushing the table up to the bed. Sad.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Agreed

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    ? hmmmm?

  • Rayne

    Omg 740lbs. She must’ve been really depressed about something.

  • IAmLegend

    It would be an injustice to this country to vote for someone who is that far behind in this campaign. That’s a wasted vote and a wasted vote is a vote for Trump.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    ?And ain’t no telling watt else is wrong inside her body.

  • Libra80sBaby

    This is sad. To have gotten this big, there is an underlying issue other than gluttony. I hope she gets the help she needs. Smh

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I posted the info for those who want to know what their options are, so they know they have options. No one is obligated to research Gov. Johnson nor are they obligated to agree that he is a viable candidate for the presidency.

    I question anyone’s motives who takes issue with the dissemination of valuable information.

  • S. Williams

    family shaming is probably the reason she’s this big. something like that is rooted in self-esteem, self-actualization, and affirmation from those around her. she probably been big her whole life. I can only imagine the hate and teasing she’s faced. I really want them to truly listen to the docots. ask what kind of food plan she can be on to receive the nutrients her body needs while trying to safely get to a weight that a doctor will feel comfortable performing the surgery.

  • iWasteTime

    It is hard for me to take him serious.
    He didn’t know that Aleppo was a Syrian city smack dab in the middle of the refugee issue.
    His single tier tax plan has not been laid out well and when pressed about specific issues with the plan has no clear rebuttal.

    how does 1 reach 700lbs?? no self control no support!!! NOW her fam is worried about her?!? now that shes weighs 700 lbs?!? foh

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    That’s fine. Again, we have options. No candidate is perfect. If he doesn’t suit your specific needs, then I’m certain you won’t vote for him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    How do you get to 750lbs?

    When I stop working out my appetite decreases proportionally to my decreased need for calories?

    I have seen these shows and many of the family members are enablers who carry food to these folks while they wallow in bed all damn day.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    This is sad. Unfortunately, there were many steps up to this point that could have avoided this. It’s hard to be mobile at this weight. Family may have continued to pacify her with food when they should’ve taken control of the situation. When she got to the point she could no longer get up and get the food herself, I wish someone would have stepped up and said ‘you can be mad at me but I’m not going to help you kill yourself.’

  • Ridingfinest

    She is doomed one way or the other and that’s sad.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    So sad. Alot of times (as I watched the show 600lb life) Its a past sexual assault of some kind and the women say they eat to put a barrier up, some say that that food is the only thing they felt they had control of in their life, some say food is like alcohol or drugs, it gives them a high or a feel good sensation from how they are feeling ie “Emotional Eating.. Yeah all the people who are dealing with this usually need emotional help..

    Horrible. Hopefully something can be done. Watching 600LB life these people have so many challenges. Bad childhood, abandonment, abuse, and the list goes on. It doesn’t help when family enables their behavior. One episode the lady was frying chicken in bed. It’s really sad.

    It was suggested that Jill Stein is the more suitable candidate between the two, but with her garnering around 3% of the vote, you’re right to suggest she isn’t a formidable option.

    I’m not campaigning for Johnson. I merely posted his name on the blog for those who aren’t aware he exists. It’s sad folks are adverse to information.

    Back to the gossip and backbiting!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    My aunt is at least 450. We don’t know past that point bc She stopped sharing how much she weighs, due to stigma. About 5 years ago. We suspect 100 lbs more at least. No sexual assault. Just was bed ridden through the years off and on and no exercise whatsoever, equals this in the end.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Her family. At the point whatever you eat is probably turning into fat. That’s why the doctor mentioned abound admits a lot of his patients for a month or so so they can lose weight then send them home to lose more before surgery.

    ?One thought: Ain’t no insurance co. gonna pay for this.

    ?Another thought: IF surgery was performed and she manages to die—family STEAL gonna be without her.

    ?Thought TREE: I think this may be too far

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Lets not throw straws at elephants..to give votes to Johnson will take away possible votes for the lesser of the two evils that are currently on ballot which might ensure the victory of the ORANGE DEVIL….

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    If you don’t want “crazy” near the White House, then you must be deaf, dumb and blind. We don’t have any options other than “crazy.”

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    May not have been sexual maybe emotional… Had she always been a big girl? Was she teased about it? Did anyone reach out and talk to her..not in a condescending tone as in “Why you let your self get that big?” Also I did say some said that food is like a drug(which it is proven that food triggers the pleasure senses)..After watching the show I do believe that what they are putting in food is addictive to some. It like alcohol or drugs the only thing is an alcoholic and drug addict is on the inside, a food addict wears their addiction on the out…

  • IGuess

    Wow n I be feeling bad about my lil stomach

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Yep… I know that was my issue I was molested by my grandfather at 12..my mother didn’t believe me I had no one to turn to so for a long time I ate my emotions.. Im healthy and good now but it did take a lot for me to get to the place to work towards my health. It came from the love and support of my children first then my guy who wasn’t judgmental. I wasn’t nowhere near the weight some become, but I understand the many ways people cope with unresolved issues in their life.

    Maybe they will leave her in the hospital and treat the gallbladder issues, while restricting her diet making her surgery ready.

    Trump had folks to put a “C” on the application to get black folks from moving into his houses but yet want black votes to vote for him to move into the White House. Trump wanted those 5 young men to die for the brutal rape pf a white woman. They were found not guilty and he said their settlement was a disgrace and said as of last week they are still guilty. Those 5 young innocent young would have been dead if Trump was President. I wanna know how much money he put into that case to make sure they went to prison since he took out full page ads in 4 newspapers. Trump job creation are low-wage hotel jobs with benefits that suck. I wanna see white folks line up for those housekeeping jobs. No one in the media is calling him a “thug” or got a problem with him raising his fist in the air. If President Obama did that he would be raising the racist “Black Power” Black Panther raised fist in the hair sign that is offensive to white people.

    The Doctor in Houston that does the surgery either gives them a food plan and has them meet with a nutritionist, or he admits them to the hospital, and has them on a strict diet. With her family saying they moved her to the hospital and there should be “something the doctors can do”, makes me think, sadly, that they think Doctors can do anything, and that’s just not the case.There’s no way her Gallbladder is her only issue. What about her blood pressure, cholesterol, breathing, etc? I’m sure they just sat there giving her her meds for those conditions, and continued to feed her. I’m not knocking the family, because sometimes these patients are vicious if their family does’t give them the food they want.Some are also vicious with the doctors and nurses. It’s not east to go from eating a ton of food all day, to eating healthy food in moderation. I don’t think she can lose the weight on her own. She needs medical intervention.

    My point was being against abortion and being libertarian is a contradiction.
    The crux of libertarianism is that the state doesn’t own your body and people like Ron and Rand Paul hedge by saying that states should decide the abortion issue.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Or you could research it for yourself, but that would take too much effort, wouldn’t it?!. An appointed “leader” should not be expected to know everything about every country and every continent in the world.

    Hell, Joe Biden didn’t know the country was in the deficit it’s in, but that didn’t stop people from voting for Obama and helping ease ol’ Joe into the White House for not one, but two terms. You should be able to Google the gross national debt, unless I’m missing something.

  • S. Williams

    she would need emergency weight loss surgery 1st which may not be covered by insurance. I just don’t think this family cares as much as they wanna portray bc it wouldn’t have gotten this far and they wouldn’t be blatantly ignoring doctors fear of her dying on the table by trying to intimidate others into doing the surgery. “there’s no way she shouldn’t be able to get some kind of surgery” yea, weight loss

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Thanks yardgirl. It took me into my late 20’s to come out of that and to begin to heal and love myself. I think back and say wow when I see these people and think..that could be me! I remember when it clicked for me I walked past a mirror and was like girl..you one french fry from beatboxin..smh..lol..but as much as my dad taught me to love me I needed to love me so I got help emotionally and began taking small step to drop it..2016 still 180 (5’10) and happy..about me on the inside and out.

They truly feel empowered to bring back old America..every retired KKK, in the old folks home will be wheeling their azzes to the voters booth for one last fuk you to black people..so I say vote for the least of the two evils Hilary and at least we ain’t going aaalll the way back to Jim Crow…so don’t divide the votes that could help us NOT have Trump.

    What you say is true.
    Most people don’t know how to spot depression and if they do they don’t know how to deal with it because mental illness has such a stigma in this country and especially the black community.
    Unfortunately if people don’t self-medicate their depression with food it’s sex or drugs.

    Huh?
    I don’t know what is wrong with her specifically, but I’m assuming she has had a lot of issues to get to that weight.

  • Full Monty

    This actually may be her saving grace. She doesn’t have to eat solid foods. She should go on a liquid diet and that weight will drop in droves. Her liquid diet shouldn’t upset the gallbladder that much. She is too heavy to have any kind of surgery.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yes hey Lucy

  • leapyearpisces

    I wonder if they could place her under a medically induced coma for a few weeks or a month or so therefore eliminating the need to eat solid foods which would automatically make her drop drastic weight, and maybe slow down the gallbladder issue, then once she gets to the “safe” weight, they could wake her back up and perform the surgery. I am thinking that “700” number is the issue. I am thinking if they could get her back into the “600” range, they could do it, even if its like 675.

  • Rayne

    I’m saying what I think what is wrong with her. Nevermind.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    A lot of that has to do with our mentality as a people.

    Passivity, resistance to change, and tradition.

    Even though the information is out there most of us don’t want to change because it would require effort and then there are some of us who would rather take a pill for high blood pressure or diabetes because that’s what Big Mama did and it doesn’t require the willpower to eat better.

    It’s just plain laziness on the part of some of us or as I prefer to call it niggeritis.

  • hottlanta

    Did yall see the episode where ole girl lost 2lbs and wanted to go straight to surgery. She called herself being smart by going to another doctor for a quickie and they told her the same thing. A lot of women lose the weight and open their eyes to see what kind of men they have in their lives and leave them after they lose the weight because some of the men were enabling them to gain the weight and stay in the home all the time.

  • yallcrazy

    I agree. They are smart enough to figure it out. If they can figure how to detach decks they can figure out how to breathe for somebody that’s heavy. Plus at this point what does she have to lose if the gallbladder going to kill her anyway.

Not sure if her weight was self inflicting or due to another medical problem but, hopefully they can figure something out. Her and her family are should be open to hearing what the doctors are able to do with her cooperation instead of being stuck on this one decision they made.

    “but doctors refuse to operate because she’s too obese to safely administer anesthesia during surgery. Too much anesthesia can kill her.”
    ***
    The title of this article is misleading; it infers the doctors refuse to operate b/c they are just nasty ppl. Nooo…this young lady’s life is at risk due to the amount anesthesia she may need.

    It’s called politics and I am sick to death of all of these conspiracy theories.
    To let the Alt-Right tell it Hillary is Satan himself and she killed Vince Foster, Socks the Cat and Ron Brown and Bozo the Clown and Cory Haines, and Prince.
    And no one is forcing women to have abortions. They are having irresponsible unprotected sex and using abortion as a form of birth control. Not my preference but it’s not my body either.

    The symptoms of gallbladder disease include nausea and vomiting, fever, severe abdominal pain, and loss of appetite. Sometimes removing the gallbladder is required to alleviate the symptoms.

  • ThisHarryHere

    meh… she shouldn’t be that fat.
    plain and simple..

  • Blak

    Her family/enablers are incredibly ignorant. At 700lbs if she can’t at least try to lose weight with a liquid diet so that they can safely operate on her then she deserves the fate that’s gonna be dealt to her. Sorry, but as 400 lbs crept on she should have said ok let me do something about this before it gets out of hand

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    She can be alert and still not consume solid food.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well her Daddy clearly ain’t about shit, otherwise he should have tried to intervene while she was packing on pounds, gorging on entire meat lover’s pizzas, and hosting pie eating contests! Where was he when all the weight was accumulating? Was he so outspoken then?

    This woman is huge, and she looks like a barge sitting in the middle of a living room. While I feel for her plight and circumstance, girl, you shoulda been trying to lose weight eons ago. And now that it takes a team of power lifters to pick her up, suddenly its the city’s fault.

    And quiet as its kept, why is she still eating solid food? She needs to go on a raw vegetable and liquid diet ASAP.

  • RespectSelf

    lol the comment section is crazy. “she needs to lose weight” no shit lol. like duh. What is concerning is the fact that they have put so much crap in the food which is causing people to be overweight and not healthy, but then don’t know how to help them? I mean seriously!!!!

You can’t blame food companies for this chile sitting up there looking like Pearl The Records Keeper. Otherwise, we’d all be fat as hell and needing a circus crew to lift us out of bed.

    I have to ask… I wonder if she’s got a man?

  • RespectSelf

    I’m not blaming the food companies… I’m not blaming anyone for her weight problem. I’m saying it is crazy that they don’t know how to navigate through situations like this at this point of time… with all the bad shit that they put in stuff and the potential for people to be as big as her.

    I feel you honey. Food is a killer. That’s why its so important to get exercise and watch that sodium. That’s something we all have to do, especially once you get past the age of 30. High blood pressure, diabetes…these are treatable and often preventable conditions.

    Maybe Katrina didn’t hear about that. It seems she just sat up there and got bigger and bigger until catastrophe struck.

    In any case, obviously her daddy is an enabler. His ass was probably the main one running to Domino’s every time her stomach growled.

  • the guest

    If they were bringing her fast food or fried foods they should feel some responsibility for her dire condition. I would never buy her unhealthy foods or beverage other than water. This woman needed tough love.

    The doctors are right and it’s just a fuked up situation all the way around.

    I think it’s a terrible position that she CHOSE to put herself – and the medical staff – in concerning her health and needing surgery.

    I wonder if they can hospitalize her for a few weeks, put her on a special diet and then maybe they’ll be able to operate once she looses a certain amount of weight?????

    My goodness how on earth does anyone even get that heavy? I get pissed off if I feel need to loose 5 to 10 lbs. I can’t imagine having to loose 5 to 6 adults as far as weight goes. DAMN.

  • rpeti

    Maybe if the family signs a waiver stating they will not file a lawsuit if something goes wrong. Most doctors are worried that this patient may not survive the surgery and then they get sued by the family

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Were they not as concerned about her weight gain as it was happening? ( they meaning the family) if they cared about her living and her quality of life why not intervene and try and get help for her prior to her being 700 pounds? Those doctors don’t want to risk this lady dying on them because they would sure as shit try and sue saying the docotors knew she would die and they operated anyway. Why not ask questions like what can we do to get her to the right weight so you can operate? Not why can’t you do it in a city this big and advanced after they have already told them she could die. ?

  • lele

    That’s terrible, but why didn’t they try to get her help before she got to 740 lbs? If she goes into surgery and she dies, the family will be the first to try to sue.

    My brother develop sepsis from an infected tooth and neglecting his diabetes and he was never the same. That was 3 years ago. It is very hard to give anesthesia to a large person because the formula to administer it is based on weight. If you give too little they will wake up mid surgery if you give too much you have to give Narcan to get the narcotics out of their system to wake the patient up.

    NAW her family should have been transporting her to the hospital when she went over 300 pounds, she should have stopped herself at 250 if you ask me. anytime someone go over 250 they just don’t give a darn and have not looked at themself through real eyes and are in extreme denial! people like this makes me extremely mad because they don’t listen until it’s too late. i recently had a relative go up to 275 she told us she was waiting until “next year” to get serious about losing weight well shortly after that maybe like 2 weeks after that her doctor said if you don’t lose 20 pounds by next month you will be put on a insulin instead of diabetes pills. she lost the weight then he told her good job now lose 117 more, he wants her to lose 10 pounds a month..but see when we told her to or asked her rather she was all up in arms and being stubborn but when the doc said it she took it seriously, it shouldn’t take that, just listen to those around you that love you. being fat is not cute or healthy!

    The prior posted answer to your question was incorrect.
    Infected gallbladder (cholecystitis) can be treated with antibiotics.
    A gallbladder with stones (cholelithiasis) is most often treated surgically.
    All doctors are bound by the Hippocratic which in essence outlines, Do No Harm.
    You don’t cut someone open when the risk of surgery outweighs the benefit.
    She needs to get through acute phase, and go from there.
    Family seemingly is overplaying this one….

    There are many other drugs used for anesthesia that Narcan will reverse. There is no way to counter the effects of Propofol but and I may be wrong I think stimulants will help with a Proprofol overdose.

    Welll these severly obese patients have to understand usually there is no scales that weigh 700 lb patient to start with. The beds, cots for the ambulance are not intended for someone so big. So it is not they refuse to be mean it is they don’t have many options even in a helicopter they don’t have that much room but her family acts like well someone has to deal with her. I have seen women and men who were put into like nursing type homes where the staff would have to feed them. One time this woman was crying Im hungry Im hungry and my friend accidentally thought they had forgot this ladys lunch and she went to the cafeteria and got food and brought to the women..

    The advantages to using narcotics and the benzodiazapines is that there are specific reversal agents for both those classes of drugs. For the narcotics, the reversal agent is naloxone or narcan, and for the benzodiazapines the reversal agent is flumazinal or rumazicon.

    Im glad for you that you came through surgery!

    Ty because it scared me that I couldn’t wake up. I hope to never need surgery again.

    No I don’t have sleep apnea I am not anywhere as big as this woman but I’m plus size. Since the formula to give anesthesia is based on weight many times larger ppl are given too much. I had a thyridectomy in March but I had Graves Disease for 9 years. It’s hard to lose weight with a thyroid problem. I dintend have an allergy to the medicine I had to large of a dose.

  • Nathan Fisher

    You already decided to kill yourself when you worked yourself up to that weight. It’s not just her gall bladder that needs surgery, her whole body is likely on the verge of giving out. Call me harsh, but I say save the time, resources and effort on someone who needs it, not someone who clearly doesn’t value their life in the first place.

    “In a city like Houston, as big of a medical field as this is, there’s
    no way she shouldn’t be able to get some kind of surgery done,” he said.

    He’s obviously very worried about his daughter but the doctors and hospital aren’t going to take such a risk because they know they can be sued because she is a high risk patient who would most likely not survive the operation. It’s too bad the family didn’t intervene sooner. There are enablers in that family. Family and friends had to be bringing her food whenever and whatever she wanted. Little do they realize that they were helping to kill her. Lots of water and foods like buckwheat may help with her gallbladder attacks. But apparently her gallbladder is beyond any other options except surgery. They could try. Anything is better then nothing at the point she was at. Hope she recovered and is doing well.
