We hope that by now you’ve learned something about us at DigZoo. We might write about the craziest, weirdest, grossest stuff out there but we never flat out fabricate a story. We love to have fun with cover pictures but they’re always thematically related. So let's just get this out of the way because there's no way we can tell you the following with it sounding 100% made up, which it is not. (Google it if you want to, it's real).
A woman gave birth to a rubber glove.
One of our computer developers dared to ask the question, “But how do you give birth to a rubber glove!?” as he saw me typing away at my computer.
“It came out of her vagina, but it didn’t go in that way.”
Asked and answered.
Anyway, a 48-year-old French woman underwent a hysterectomy last year in Marseilles, France. The surgery involves the complete removal of a woman’s uterus and is often undertaken to reduce the risk of cancer or to remedy conditions such as endometriosis (chronic pelvic pain) or fibroids which are large non-cancerous growths that can cause immense pain.
After the surgery, which the woman was told went perfectly well, but she continued to experience crippling stomach pain, difficulty urinating, and trouble sleeping.
She told reporters,
“I had the feeling someone was stabbing me with a knife in the belly but I thought it was linked to the operation. I naturally talked about it with nurses and the surgeon. He told me that I was a lightweight and prescribed painkillers without conducting any extra examinations.”
However, the true horror began when she returned home and experienced abdominal pain that was described as ‘crippling’. And the woman was shocked when she suddenly began to experience contractions. It took five of them for her to suddenly expel one rubber glove and five compressors. The process lasted five hours and left her in a pool of blood.
Perhaps the most angering thing about this?
When she contacted the surgeon he simply told her to speak to his insurer because he “was very well insured”.
