I read that the main reason for his health decline was that his surgeon was unfamiliar with treating obese patients. That I can believe. Kim is/was probably the only fat person in the whole country. Everyone else is starving!
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
He isn't/wasn't merely fat, but extremely obese, with a BMI of approximately 45. That alone makes him a poor risk for any surgery.
Add to that known cardiac issues, heavy smoking, etc., and no reputable surgeon would touch him.
(Of course in the DRNK, I doubt the surgeon had much choice. )
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

I can't get over how self centered most (seemingly) people are
It's not just in your building! It's everywhere!
Seriously, I spend way more time than I'd like, listening to type A people drone on about their miserable self-centered lives. I've got a retired neighbor who just loves to talk...I avoid him, especially during work hours. I've got a brother-in-law who calls me just about every day because he is bored and has no friends. Then, there is the current example of a non-technical colleague who needs help troubleshooting a slow wifi issue at her new house. It's been around 25 min. now on this phone call and finally past the point of 'turn in off and turn it back on'...to be continued.
I wanted to get out of a lease and "played up" the stomping part. The landlord came to check me out personally. As luck would have it, at that moment we hear stomping and he goes: "What's that noise?!" "Oh, it's someone climbing the stairs" (3 story appt; stairs). No contest.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.
