Tammy Slaton hospitalized with carbon monoxide poisoning in November 2021

In season 3 of 1000 pound sisters, Tammy faces challenges in her weight loss journey. Now we have more clarity on the environment of these challenges.

“Around July of this year, I had a nervous breakdown,” Tammy explained in a November 2021 TikTok post. “I got lost…until the end of August. Tammy also explains how she took a break from filming the TLC series in September 2021 and resumed a month later in October.

“I ended up in the hospital with carbon dioxide poisoning… which resulted in pneumonia and I was septic,” Tammy continues on her TikTok, explaining why her voice sounds the way it does. “After I got off life support they put a trachea in, so I’m trying to get used to it.” Tammy also mentions that she has to go to rehab and “get her strength back” every time the hospital releases her.

‘1000-lb Sisters’ star Tammy Slaton is still in rehab

According to Tammy’s TikTok posts from January 2022, she is still in a rehab facility. Fans of the TLC series discovered Tammy’s most recent posts, and some speculated that her stay at the facility had something to do with Amy’s new home.

“Is Tammy in a nursing home now until she can live on her own because Amy moved out?” a fan wrote on Reddit. In the Season 3 episode of the TLC series “Moving on Up and Partying on Down”, Amy and Michael learn that the sellers have accepted the offer they made on a house. Additionally, Amy told Tammy about her family’s plan to move out of the home they once shared. This all took place before Tammy was hospitalized with pneumonia or transferred to rehab.

Other fans were quick to correct the original poster’s speculation that Amy’s move resulted in Tammy’s hospitalization, citing Tammy’s trachea and a previous pneumonia diagnosis as the reason for her attendance at a facility. . “I believe she is now in a nursing home due to the trachea,” they wrote in a comment.

“She is now in a nursing home because of her trachea, and I strongly believe the trachea is here to stay,” another Reddit user said. “As long as the windpipe is there, an independent life will never be a possibility for Tammy.”

How long will Tammy Slaton be in rehab?

At this time, it’s unclear how long the TLC star will have to stay in a rehab facility. Despite her activity on TikTok, Tammy hasn’t shared a health update for some time. Additionally, his YouTube channel hasn’t been live since February 2021.

Amy also hasn’t posted about her sister on social media. She’s more active on YouTube and Instagram than Tammy, but most of her posts are about unboxings or her and Michael’s son, Gage.
