EMOTIONAL Renee Graziano told of the harrowing moment she feared she would DIE after contracting an infection following her tummy tuck and liposuction which has now left her craving a “woman’s body.”
After pouring her heart out to the programme, fans swiftly took to Twitter to offer their sympathy and support.
She said: “I was beautiful back then, but I never felt it.”
After being downtrodden by her boyfriend’s comments about her having boobs but no bum followed by her then-husband slamming her for apparently being “fat” she took to the treatment table and “didn’t think twice.”
Yet her desire for a dream body turned into a nightmare when she contracted an infection post surgery.
She revealed she had a four-pint blood transfusion: “There was a pool of blood like you see in the movies.
“Like when someone gets shot.
“The blood was spilling out and I was so afraid.
“I felt my life slipping away.”
After learning of her harrowing ordeal, viewers were quick to comment on social media.

Renee was then forced to learn how to walk and eat again after her harrowing ordeal.
She shed 36 pounds and suffered swollen legs, commenting: “There are pieces of my body I feel are never going to get better.”
After seeking the advice of a London surgeon for the reality show she added: “I want to have a woman’s body.
“I think plastic surgery is an addiction – I was addicted to being beautiful.”
Her sister Jennifer Graziano told RadarOnline.com: “She is back in Florida. She is getting treatment that stems from her depression and some things that she has to work out. I can’t get into detail. It’s a personal thing. But basically she is getting treated for depression and she’s trying to work it out.”
