Pennsylvania woman loses nearly 200 pounds in one day thanks to cyst removal

March 1 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman who struggled with her weight for 16 years lost nearly 200 pounds in a single day when doctors removed a massive cyst from her body.

Mary Clancey, 71, of Schuylkill County said she tried for years to lose weight, but she just kept gaining until she reached 365 pounds.

"I was at the doctor's and I said what do you think, what do I do about his pot belly? He said just watch your diet and take care," Clancey told WFMZ-TV.

"I tried this that and whatever was on TV," she told WNEP-TV. "I exercised and did all sorts of things, and I just kept getting rounder."

1. Her center of gravity suddenly changed, no

wonder she was feeling "off".

At 180 pounds now, she must feel much more comfortable physically and have a lot more energy. Hope she'll be well.

2. This happened to my grandmother back in 1974

Unfortunately they never found the monster tumor until the autopsy. Back in the day people avoided going to doctors.
