Operation Transformations Shane Farrells school praise him for his hard work as they show off incredible w – The Irish Sun

OPERATION Transformation star Shane Farrell's school have praised him for his "hard work" in losing weight as they show off his incredible transformation.

Shane appeared on the hit RTE show last year where he explained that he wanted to lose weight to make the list for life-changing surgery



The music teacher was diagnosed with a neurological condition and lost the ability to control his bladder, which is called a dead bladder, after a trampoline accident at the age of 15.

He has overcome adversity, having had three children despite being told he wouldn't be able to due to the nerve damage.

The condition can be hard to live with, as sometimes in work he is so busy he forgets to empty his bladder.

That results in him feeling very sick and he is prone to constant infections.

However, this is no longer the case as a trial procedure in a hospital in Belgium has already given Shane a glimpse of the future.

The plan now is to implant the device permanently in Shanes back. The surgery is expensive and the rehabilitation could take six months.

When the series ended in March Shane had lost 2st 13lbs. However since then he has gone on to lose almost another three.

The school where Shane works, Sacred Heart in Tullamore, shared a snap of Shane and he looks so different.

The first picture the school shared was of Shane before he went on the show as he posed with the show host Kathryn Thomas.

The next two pictures they shared was of Shane now as he posed in the school gym with a face mask on and holding up an Operation Transformation sign.

Sacred Hearts captioned these snaps saying: "What a difference a year makes (and we are not talking about the mask)!!

"This time last year we had great excitement in the school when Kathryn Thomas arrived in to surprise Mr Farrell as an Operation Transformation leader.

"A huge well done to Mr Farrell on his hard work and dedication on his continuing journey.

"We are so proud of you! Operation Transformation."

Shane recently spoke with RTE star Ray D'Arcy on his radio show as he gave him an update on how his weight loss has been going.

He said: "We went into lockdown straight after the grand finale so thankfully I had been given the tools I had to deal with this in all aspects of my life.

"I had two choices; I could go with how I did the show or go back to my old habits and thankfully I kept going. I'm doing great.

"I was 20st 7 starting OT and to get my surgery in Belgium, I need to get to a weight of 16st to get on the list and then 15st to get the actual surgery.

"We hoped sometime next year I'd reach the 16st target to get on the list but today I can announce that I am 16st 2 so I'm nearly there for the list."

He added: "[It'll help] my bladder control and my pain. If I get rid of my pain I'd be able to manage completely.

"I would have kidney infections week after week and since OT I have not had one kidney infection.

"The OT plan works and I've tried all the diets you can think of, I really have.

"I think people can relate to the programme OT and it's a journey both mentally and physically."
