Did Tammy Slaton have weight loss surgery on the TLC series '1000-Lb. Sisters'?

With Season 2 scheduled to air in 2021, fans are wondering if Tammy eventually underwent weight loss surgery like her sister Amy. 

At this time, Tammy's Instagram account is currently private and she has not posted on Twitter since last February. But, from the Season 2 trailer, it looks like Tammy has not given up on her goal of losing enough weight to be a candidate for the surgery.

However, it's going to be an uphill battle for the reality star.

"I've fallen off the wagon," Tammy tells cameras in the Season 2 trailer, which also shows her having a hard time walking and catching her breath. Dr. Procter also expresses his concern for Tammy in the TLC clip, telling her that her chances of dying in the next five years are "about 80 percent."
