Oprah Winfrey has just three years to live according to experts who have reviewed her medical history.
Her weight has soared to 250 pounds – and medical experts say that unless the 55-year-old talk-show queen undergoes lifesaving surgery to remove her thyroid, she’ll eat her way into an early grave.
Without the surgery, it’s unlikely that Oprah will ever be able to control her weight, and she could suffer a fatal heart attack or stroke, those experts warn.
The TV titan is so desperate to slim down after years of failed diet and exercise regimens that she’s considered undergoing the surgery, insiders say, but her plans for the life-or-death operation will be kept secret from her fans.
"Oprah is in a really bad place right now, and we’re all very worried about her," a close family insider told The ENQUIRER.
"She’s down on herself for all the weight she’s gained, and even though she prides herself on being open and honest with her viewers, she’s considered having thyroid surgery, but not telling anyone.
"She’s not proud of being so secretive, but she can’t face another round of strict dieting and rigorous exercise, and she fears surgery is the only way out!"
