Playing EXCLUSIVE: Mama June's Gastric Bypass Surgery Goes Wrong in Graphic 'From Not to Hot' Sneak Peek

Not everything went as planned during Mama June's life-changing gastric bypass surgery.

In two new exclusive clips from the 37-year-old reality star's new WE tv show, Mama June: From Not to Hot, cameras go inside her surgery, showing in graphic detail exactly how they cut her stomach out.

"This surgery is honestly probably the scariest thing I've ever done in my life," Mama June admits prior to the procedure. "I mean, I could die from it. I'm not one to let go of control easily and I have no control over this situation once they put me to sleep."

The surgeon explains that a tube is placed all the way in the beginning of the stomach to the end of the stomach, and they cut everything outside of the tube. However, things get scary when Mama June begins to bleed.

Of course, we know the surgery was eventually successful. Still, the mother of four has lots of trouble recovering, as seen in another exclusive clip shot just one day post-surgery. Mama June has to practice getting out of bed, and can barely sip water due to stomach cramps.

"I'm feeling every bit of the pain today," Mama June says. "I'm very, very sore -- very agitated."

Thankfully, she gets cheered up by two of her daughters, 11-year-old Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and 17-year-old Lauryn "Pumpkin" Thompson.

"The hardest part is over, the surgery's happened, and I'm excited to go home and watch the fat come off of me," Mama June says. "And in a couple of months now, I'm going to be sitting back, relaxing, and dating hot men."

Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on WE tv.

Mama June is now reportedly a size four after previously weighing 460 pounds. ET sat down with Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin earlier this month -- as well as her trainer on the show, Kenya Crooks -- who talked about Mama June's newfound confidence since dropping a shocking amount of weight.

"I ain't trying to be like R-rated or anything, but she walks around the house in a pair of her underwear now, so...," Pumpkin joked. "Uh huh. I'm like, 'June, put some pants on! Put some pants on!'"
