“I looked at the pathology results. There’s no easy way to say this. I have some bad news for you. “I don’t think you’re a good candidate for surgery right now,” Dr. Michael Feiz, a bariatric surgeon, tells Mama June and now-husband Justin Stroud in this exclusive preview of the July 22 episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption.

Not what I was hoping to hear, Mama June responds. She hoped she would be eligible for bariatric revision surgery. In 2016, she underwent gastric sleeve surgery and subsequently lost 300 pounds.
“This will not be as straightforward.” Revisions are significantly more hazardous, “Dr. Feiz states.” “Revisions are far more likely to bleed.” If anything, I am attempting to ensure that we do not put your life in jeopardy. I don’t want to go down this road until you’ve spent significant time addressing your relationship with food.

Mama June desires a revision procedure so that she can “stop eating.” Dr. Feiz recommends that June consume modest quantities, eat healthily, and engage with a therapist to “dissociate food from any other emotion” as an alternative to surgery. In June. That is simpler to say than to do.
“It is impossible to overcome a food addiction if you must eat every day.” At least I sought treatment for my drug dependency. “As far as I am aware, there is no rehab or eating disorder,” Mama June explains. Juen informs Dr. Feiz that “this is our last chance” to make a significant lifestyle adjustment.
The synopsis for the June 22 episode goes as follows: “Pumpkin and Josh’s custody of Alana derails, and Sugar Bear is compelled to intervene; Pumpkin and Josh receive a shocking development; June and Justin travel to Los Angeles for dental and weight-loss procedures.” Mama June: Road to Redemption airs on WE television every Friday at 9 p.m.
