A 64st man who couldn't get out of bed for five years has taken his first steps - after he lost nearly five stone in a MONTH thanks to gastric bypass surgery.

Dharmaveer Simothy, 46, was so large he had to book THREE business-class seats to fly to India after doctors in his native Mauritius said it was too dangerous to operate.

But a month after surgery to bypass his stomach, he has already lost 4st 10lbs and is walking for the first times in years.

The mammoth surgery saw doctors use a special reinforced bed, extra long tools and super strength surgical staples.
