Baby Paralysed My Stomach
A mother-of-one has been unable to eat for four years after developing a rare condition during pregnancy which left her with a paralysed stomach. Charlene Johnstone developed gastroparesis when she fell pregnant with her son, Hayden, now three. She was sick up to 15 times a day and ended up being tube fed. The illness caused the 24-year-old from Knightswood, Glasgow, to shrink from a healthy size 12 to a gaunt size 6 at her worst.
