My 600-lb Life: Fans Worry For The Show’s Future

  • “He’s 79! I’ve noticed in more recent seasons he looks a little bit like he’s wearing himself out. Some of those surgeries take so long, especially the skin removal ones. What are we going to do when he hangs up his scalpel? I’ve been wondering if maybe he will quit operating but still run the rest of the appointments. He has certainly earned retirement, but he seems too dedicated to give it all up.”
  • “Actually they already have Dr. Heydari onboard. He saved my best friend’s life when she had a herniated bowel obstruction and he’s a phenomenal bariatric surgeon. I suspect they may shift things over to him a bit.”
  • “Yeah most doctors would have retired like 10 years ago at least, so he’s clearly devoted. I also thought that if he still wanted to do the show, and or keep working, he could still do the consultations, but have someone else do the actual surgeries.”

Dr. Now has yet to open up about his imminent retirement. But many have been impressed by his dedication to his job, especially at his age.

  1. I don’t see Dr Now hanging it up too soon I could be wrong but his brother worked all the way up to his passing

  2. I am amazed by this man! How many lives he saved is remarkable! All of these filmed patients have been over the edge of reasoning. He knows when to pull the plug and help another candidate!
