A woman who suffers from a rare condition that left her with legs weighing almost 200 pounds has been given a new lease of life after having one of the giant limbs amputated.

Mandy Sellers was born with an average size body but abnormally large legs and feet, which have continued to grow throughout her life.

Check out FoxNews.com's exclusive interview with Mandy Sellars from 2009.

Her disorder has made it difficult for her to get around and left her contending with various illnesses.

Doctors finally decided to amputate her left leg in January 2010 and now she says her "life is better than ever".

"I had a couple of infections in a short period of time including septicaemia so the doctors decided to amputate," Sellars said. "The amputation has completely changed my life because I am not getting ill all the time any more. I feel as healthy as I have felt for 20 years."
