This Woman’s Hands Weigh So Much Doctors Have Told Her To Cut Them Off
Her hands weigh a stone and a half each.
Duangjay Samaksamam suffers from a rare and painful condition that has caused her hands and arms to swell to such a size that she now finds the most basic tasks extremely difficult.
The 59-year-old’s hands weigh almost a stone and a half each.
However, she eventually went to work to support her parents.
Samaksamam is quoted by The Sun as saying: “My hands are so heavy I can barely lift them to comb or shampoo my hair. It’s very difficult. Getting dressed is also very difficult and painful."
Samaksamam's story appears in a new series of Body Bizarre on TLC on 25 September.
