A bizarre phenomenon: This man was constipated for 22 years until the doctors removed 13 kg of feces

Everybody has experienced sometimes a lot of trouble when they went to the toilet, and as we all know, it’s not something that you wouldn’t wish even to your worst enemy. Constipation is really terrible.

But eventually, we get through, but imagine if it lasts 22 years – really unlikely!

But this man was constipated for 22 years. Yes, you are reading it well. 22 years!

It may sound like your worst nightmare, but this was the reality for this man who was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease at a young age.

What is Hirschsprung’s disease?

“Hirschsprung’s disease or congenital megacolon is a congenital colon disorder which occurs mainly in the last part of the colon. It is a relatively rare disorder that occurs once in 5,000 people,” as it says on Wikipedia.

For this man, as Dr. David Rosenfeld states at the television program “The Doctors”, it took a long time before he got any help, but after 22 years of constipation, he was finally operated on.

During the surgery, more than 13 kilograms of excrements were removed which Rosenfeld described as having been pregnant for several years.

So next time you go to the toilet to empty your intestines – you ought to be glad that you were able to do it because there are some people who cannot experience that ‘luxury’.
