The Woman With The 150lb Leg | BORN DIFFERENT

A BED-BOUND girl whose leg swelled to a massive 150lb has vowed to restart her life after enduring a radical twelve-hour operation to remove the growth. Jamila Coleman, 27, spent nearly four years watching the world through a window after a rare form of lymphedema caused her leg to balloon to 3ft-wide below the knee. Despite her condition progressively worsening, insurers refused to cover an operation until earlier this year when surgeons finally removed 120lbs of flesh and fluid. Now in recovery, Jamila from Snelville, Georgia, is learning to walk again through rehab and exercise and is determined to forge a new life for herself.
