The boy suffers from obstructive sleep apnea and curving legs. Doctors have decided that it is necessary to resort to bariatric surgery to reduce stomach, and remove excess fat from the abdomen – after the operation the boy has lost about 15% of its weight, and, in the end, managed to normalize weight. However, some doctors believe that it may in the future lead to a vitamin deficiency.
