What may be the world’s unluckiest man was rushed to hospital in the middle of the night after he discovered his rectum had turned inside out. The man, who decided to remain anonymous (can’t blame him), told authorities that he had spent half an hour on the toilet trying to poo while reading on his phone when he looked down and realised what had happened.
Doctors diagnosed him with a rectal prolapse that uh… don’t Google that by the way. It is described by doctors as what happens when the rectum loses its attachment to the body and becomes visible from the outside. Or to put it another you, a rectum is like a sock and a prolapse is what happens when that sock turns inside out.
This poor guy had t undergo gastro-intestinal surgery at The Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University in Southeast China to have his butt turned back the right way. Doctors said that the prolapse measured 16cm which is apparently a very severe case (I myself cannot say what is or is not normal for inside out butts). The reason for this is because, as the doctor explains,
“The patient had rectal prolapse since he was four years old, the bulge was able to retract. But he did not treat the condition and the situation has got worse.”
Another cause of this particular prolapse was the unusual amount of time the man spent on the toilet trying to force a poo. It’s common for prolapses to occur under these conditions because the pressure on the pelvic muscles can make it unusually difficult for them to hold on, but this guy didn’t help his case by keeping it up for a solid 30 minutes.
Doctors advise that if this ever happens to you, you should seek medical treatment immediately.
I don’t know about you but if my assh*le turned inside out I wouldn’t exactly be nonchalant about it. I think seeking medical treatment would be my absolute number one priority, and would be done so with the urgency of… well the urgency of a man whose ass has turned inside out like a sweaty gym sock being peeled off a foot.
I bet that image will stay with you for the rest of the day.
