It will take her eight hours to process a meal. She has lost weight and has gone from a size 14 to a size 10.

Three years ago, Suzanne kettle began to suffer nausea and stomach pain. Doctors took quite sometime to correctly diagnose her illness.

A special stomach pacemaker is her only hope for a normal life. She needs to undergo a stringent testing process to decide if she is eligible for Ģ25,000 surgery on the NHS.

A temporary pacemaker will be fitted on Suzanne in two weeks. She is desperate to have her quality of life back.
