Gideon Yeakley Sleep Addiction

After his surgery, the 34-year-old Oklahoma native couldn't stop sleeping.  He has a wife and son so sleeping all day was unacceptable.  Feeling tired after bypass surgery is not normal and could be a sign of a vitamin deficiency.  Gideon promised his family that he would get a job after the surgery but he broke that promise.


Most people that appear on My 600 lb Life have trouble keeping up with their diets after their surgeries.  That wasn't Gideon's issue.  He has lost most of his immediate family members.  Gideon's mother, father and sister have all passed away.
