A 33-year-old woman who shed tons of excess flab by undergoing a skin removal surgery is likely to die—upon learning that she was almost about to get dumped. Brianne Dias had an indomitable desire to lose weight and lost 400 lbs post-surgery.

But, the young woman met with the rudest shock of her life after learning about her husband’s decision to leave her for another woman. Dejected beyond imagination; Dias fell into a pit of gloom and refused to leave the bed for several days on end, putting her life into a “life-threatening” situation soon after surgery.

“She got a little depressed and discouraged, so she wasn't getting up and walking around this past week like she was supposed to, and started having some pain in her legs and her side and started having some trouble breathing,” said Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, her weight loss surgeon, in an exclusive clip from Wednesday's episode of "My 600-Lb. Life: Where Are They Now" as told to PEOPLE.

“And so the concern is that she might have a blood clot that's formed in her legs from being immobile after a major operation,” added Nowzaraden. Find the link to the clip here.

The lack of activity after surgery has led to gnawing medical repercussions, as Nowzaradan averred that any blood clots could dislodge and move towards the lungs, causing "a pulmonary embolism that could be fatal.

“It's very important that we determine if she has a clot or not, so we can address it before anything life-threatening develops,” he said in the clip, as cited in the report. He further added that Dias will have to undergo another surgery if a blood clot is found. The possibility of another surgery, albeit imperative, isn’t something that Nowzaradem hopes would happen.

“But I don't want to put any more strain on her body with another procedure this soon after her skin removal surgery,” he said, adding, “We found a blood clot in her lungs, so right now there is a ticking clock, because at any moment this could lead to a life-threatening event that there's a chance she won't survive.”
