Grotesque images show surgeons holding a huge part of a man’s bowel weighing 13kg after its removal cured his chronic constipation.

The 22-year-old patient from China suffers from a rare condition that causes excrement to build up inside his large intenstine.
His organs swelled to a huge size, causing him to appear heavily pregnant, and doctors removed 30 inches of his intestines before posing with it.
Surgeons were shocked by what they found – with Doctor Yin Lu of the the 10th People’s Hospital of Shanghai saying: ‘It looked like it could explode at any time.’
Tests confirmed that the young man had months – and possibly even years – of faeces trapped inside his body.

                       The patient was suffering from a rare condition

The man is believed to have been born with Hirschprung’s desease, giving him a lack of nerves in some muscles inside his colon.
Prior to the surgery, the man relied on laxatives and other constipation medicine to force bowel movements.

Reports claim he finally had surgery due to intense discomfort, but this was not confirmed by medics.
After a three-hour surgery, part of the intestine measuring 30 inches (76cm) and weighing 13 kg (28lbs) was removed.
The patient is stable and is expected to make a full recovery.
