Why was Mama June Shannon hospitalized?
Mama June Shannon was hospitalized after experiencing bad headaches and dizziness for some time. Her doctor immediately decided to admit her as a precaution.
According to the latest updates, doctors are trying to find out the reason behind the pain. Shannon also confirmed that she has undergone a number of tests and scans to reach a prognosis.
Shannon informed TMZ that her symptoms are not the result of a relapse.
She has struggled with various health issues over the years. She did not treat her cataracts, which made her legally blind. She has also battled weight problems and underwent a gastric sleeve procedure along with a tummy tuck to lose weight.
She had to battle her drug addiction and she has disclosed that she gained weight again but is happy. While speaking to TooFab in 2021, she said,
"With my weight loss, I have, as I like to tell people, gained that healthy Covid weight. I've put on probably about 60-70 pounds. Am I happy the way I am? Yeah. When I was a size 2 at 150, I was way too damn small. Now I'm 250 and I feel good. Even when I was 500, people didn't believe I was 500."
