The world’s former fattest man has disclosed that a hospital planned to put him to death in an abattoir because they couldn’t handle his size.

Paul Mason, 61-year-old from Ipswich, stated that he was disgusted’ at the plans he had drawn up over his three years of living on a hospital unit. They included giving him an animal funeral if he passed away.

The former postman, who once weighed 80 stone, said to ITV in The World’s Fattest Man: Ten Years On that he was subject to inhumane treatment and struggled to lose weight.    

Paul stated that if someone died in hospital, they wouldn’t have the ability to handle someone my size. Therefore, they made a form to say that if someone dies in hospital, they would have to take me to an Abattoir to see large animals and then they’d have to cremate me in the animal cremation.

“I thought it was disgusting.” He added that he couldn’t believe what they were doing.

Paul explained that when he was the heaviest, it was more difficult to leave his house. As his 40-chocolate-a-day diet made his teeth crumble, he would take the broken ones out by himself, according to The Sun. 

He claimed that he could kill a nerve by heating up needles and sterilizing his mouth before inserting the needle into his gum. 

According to the 61-year old, he has removed at least 12 of his own teeth by using this method.

Paul, who became famous on TLC’s World’s Fattest Man, has struggled to lose weight since then. 

Paul briefly found love with Rebecca Mountain - 13 years his junior (pictured), after shedding his excess weight with gastric bypass surgery

Paul briefly fell in love with Rebecca Mountain, 13 years his senior (pictured), after losing his excess weight through gastric bypass surgery.

He was able to shrink down to 19 stone after a successful gastric bypass surgery in 2010 and soon moved to the United States to be with Rebecca Mountain – 13 years his junior.

Paul was living in America when he had to undergo operations to remove his excess skin.

After a few pizzas, he quickly gained more weight and reached over 30 stone. His relationship with Rebecca ended.  

Paul previously revealed to the Mirror that the US’s basic health insurance was not sufficient for his health.

Before moving to join Ms Mountain, an eight stone vegetarian, in Massachusetts in 2014, Paul’s care was costing UK taxpayers £100,000-a-year and an estimated £1.5million in total.

Paul claims that his weight rose after his breakup with Rebecca (pictured), as he would gorge upon pizza.

Fire crews had to remove a window and brickwork in 2002 to allow a forklift to lift the patient out of the house.

After consuming 20,000 calories per day, including three meals a night from a take-out restaurant, he needed a life-saving operation in 2009.

In 2010, he underwent gastric bypass surgery, which reduced his stomach size to that of an egg.

After seeing a documentary about Mason, Ms Mountain reached out to Mr Mason in 2013.

He got engaged to his girlfriend and had four stone of his excess skin removed in a nine-hour New York procedure. 

Paul returned to the UK in 2019 after almost five years of living in the United States, claiming that he needed to get his life back on track

After almost five years living in the United States for nearly five years, Paul decided to return to the UK in 2019. He claimed that he needed to get his own life back on track. 

The NHS had refused to do the £30,000 operation until his weight had been stable for two years.

Despite him being 19 stone, the couple called it quits in September 2015.

Paul turned to stealing from supermarkets to fund his consumption and was fined $50 during a US court appearance in November 2018. 

HI returned to the UK in 2019 “for the assistance that I need to get my life on track”.

At the time Paul claimed that he needed multiple operations, including new knees, a hip and numerous hernia operations, costing the NHS over £100,000.
