Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, has died after being hospitalized for two days, family tells the media.
Shannon died after a ‘successful’ complicated surgery to remove excess skin.
Neither the family nor doctors have indicated the cause of her death but it has been widely speculated that she died from an ‘excruciating pain’.
Mama June invited cameras to document her weight loss journey in a documentary series entitled Mama June: From Not To Hot.
Last week, the mother of four unveiled her incredible transformation but the slimdown hasn’t been without its complications.
Shannon, who is bent over the bed in pain tells her daughters to take her to the hospital to get a CAT scan.
“Worst case scenario, it could be a blood clot or a leakage in the sleeve,” she says.
Shannon’s excruciating pain comes less than a week after her daughters were left anxiously waiting when a took more than five hours.
The surgeon admitted: “You can do all the planning in the world but you never know what you’re looking at until you get in there”
He then warned: “This is an extreme case of excess skin so we’re going to have to spend a little extra time liposuctioning her arms, but we run the risk of real complications.”
The reality star also almost threw in the towel last month after one of her first skin removal surgeries left her feeling “like Frankenstein”.
Shannon passed on at 37.
