Mother who vowed to slim for son dies after gastric surgery
Article in the Telegraph
"Suzanne Murphy, 29, requested the major operation because she felt her obesity limited the things she could do with her five-year-old son Jacob. After a 16-month wait, she was admitted to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for surgery on October 31, 2006, but died from multiple organ failure four days later.
In a note left under her son's pillow before the operation, Miss Murphy wrote, "I don't want my baggage to become a weight you have to carry, son."
An inquest heard how although she had contracted MRSA in hospital, Miss Murphy was likely to have died from an extreme reaction to the operation, exacerbated by her obesity.
At the hearing in Huddersfield, her sister Linda Richardson said in a statement: "She had put on a lot of weight over the years and felt it was stopping her doing the things she wanted to with Jacob.""People are given the wrong information about obesity and it leads to this sort of tragedy.
