Surgeons remove 28 Pounds of faeces from man constipated from birth (graphics)

Surgeons removed 30 inches of a man's
large intestine after diagnosing him with a
rare condition involving a building-up of
constipation throughout his life.

The unnamed male patient, 22, is believed
to have been born with the conprivate part
condition known as Hirschsprung's disease
– also known as "HD".

It means his stool cannot pass because of a
lack of nerves in some muscles inside his
colon.

As a result, the man's abdomen began to
bulge at a very young age – to the point
where people thought he appeared heavily
pregnant.
