The teaser then showed Tammy with a good attitude after undergoing a tracheotomy to assist her to breathe. "I'm still here, b*****s!" she said, smiling. Tammy asks her doctor whether she may be authorized for bariatric surgery, but he insists that she must first reduce a large amount of weight.

Amy stated in a since-deleted TikTok video that the tracheotomy was for carbon dioxide toxicity, not weight loss. The trailer then followed Tammy's continuous battle with her weight, including showing her being denied by Dr Eric Smith after telling him she wanted to be authorized for bariatric surgery. "I told you, Tammy, you have real risks," he said. Her brother, Chris, who was there for the visit, expressed anxiety, saying, "If she doesn’t get the surgery, she’s gonna die because of her weight."

The trailer concluded with Tammy being taken into an ambulance as her oxygen level fell. Amy's voiceover voiced her concern that Tammy would "end up dead." When the new season of '1000-lb Sisters' starts on TLC on Tuesday, January 17 at 9 pm ET, fans will be able to catch up with the Slaton sisters.
