See How a 28 Pounds Feces was Removed from Man Constipating for 22 years, 'hirschprung's disease'

A 3-hour successful Hirschsprung’s disease surgery was carried out on an unnamed 22-year-old man who has reportedly constipated since birth due to the Hirschsprung’s disease.

Hirschsprung’s disease causes the bowels to swell because the nerves that are supposed to control the gut are missing.

The unnamed man had 30 inches of his grossly enlarged bowel removed by surgeons at Tenth People’s Hospital of Shanghai, East China.

Doctor Yin Lu and his team of experts met with the man and said he looked like he was nine months pregnant because of the painful enlargement and feces backup after hirschsprung disease diagnosis.

The medical experts believe he had been constipated for years and looked ‘like he was about to explode.’

The patient said he had always suffered from constipation and used laxatives, but those only offered a brief relief. He finally went to the hospital so doctors could relieve him of his symptoms.

The medic’s instinct told them that the patient was suffering from a form of megacolon and tests conducted confirmed that the man had months, even years, worth of feces inside a portion of his colon, causing the immense swelling of his abdomen.

At the end of a 3-hour operation, doctors successfully removed the affected portion of his colon as well as the massive accumulation of poop— and he is expected to recover.

Hirschsprung’s disease, a disease which affects one in every 5,000 babies is considered to be rare.

It causes feces to become stuck in the bowels because the nerves that control the movement of feces are missing from a section at the end of the bowel, which means feces can build-up and form a blockage.

Hirschsprung’s disease can cause severe constipation, and occasionally lead to a serious bowel infection called enterocolitis if it’s not identified and treated early.

All children with Hirschsprung’s disease will need surgery.
