A 40-stone woman who was terrified of leaving her home had not seen her mother in three years

A 40-stone woman too large to leave her own home told of her heartbreak that she could not visit her mother shortly before she died.

Jane, 53, who appeared on Channel 5 on last night's Big Body Squad episode, died after appearing on the show after being imprisoned for years in her home in Gloucester.

The show follows the professionals who care for overweight people whose condition made them dependent on the help of others, and Jane admitted that her caregiver was her only real contact with the outside world.

& # 39; I haven't seen my mother for three years, maybe a little longer, and I still want to see her, so, so much & # 39 ;, Jane revealed.

Viewers were sympathetic to her condition and said that Jane was stuck in a terrible situation.

Unfortunately, it was revealed at the end of the show that Jane had died since filming, although it is not clear whether she was ever reunited with her mother.

Jane had weak knees and limited mobility due to her large frame and relied on a walker to move around her house. She also suffered fluid retention in her legs, which was very painful.

& # 39; My legs are terrible, & # 39; Jane commented, & # 39; I got all these nodules and if I just knocked it on, I could bleed. & # 39;

After having been trapped for so many years, Jane admitted that the isolation had taken its toll, making her terrified by the idea of ​​going out.

& # 39; I have panic attacks, & # 39; she explained.

Jane had to be transported to the hospital in a special ambulance (photo) and put on the ambulance in a stretcher that was too large.

& # 39; It's just being kept constant, it's really coming to mind, & # 39; she added. & # 39; Just going for a walk would be great. & # 39;

She added that having a caregiver was the only thing that made her life bearable.

& # 39; Without a caregiver, I would not have got the life I have now, & # 39; Jane admitted.

& # 39; It's not really a life, I know, but if I didn't let her come, I would end up in a nursing home, & # 39; she went on.

Jane & # 39; s caretaker Aida Bishop had been working with her for a year while filming.

Part of her duties was to wash Jane and clean her house. In the beginning Jane struggled with the idea of ​​being cared for, but the two women came close.

& # 39; I was stiff because of my size, & # 39; said Jane, & when (Aida) came, she immediately put me at ease. & # 39;

& # 39; She is like a sister to me, & # 39; Aida confirmed.

During the program, Jane saw all her courage come together to leave the house for an appointment with the hospital.

The action of propping herself on a specially crafted stretcher was difficult for Jane, who prayed not to get a panic attack because professionals were busy around her.

& # 39; I haven't had a panic attack in centuries, I don't want that, & # 39; she said, catching her breath.

Jane was then lifted onto the ambulance using a winch made to lift patients up to 60 stones.

But the team succeeded in successfully loading Jane onto the ambulance and she was soon on her way to the hospital for her check-up.

On the way back from the hospital, it took the crew a few minutes to help Jane out of the stretcher because her legs were vulnerable and damaged, which meant they had to be treated with extra care.

Terrified of falling, Jane kept apologizing to the crew, standing by her side.

Once back in her living room chair, Jane expressed her gratitude to the team of professionals, saying: “They were really brilliant. I could not have asked for better care. & # 39;

It was revealed at the end that Jane had died since filming before the show, but it was not made clear if she managed to reunite with her mother
