In these modern times, smartphones are a staple in our daily lives. Many people’s noses always seem to be buried in their mobile phones no matter where they go and what they do. If you’re one of those people who’s always in their phones, then you might want to change your lifestyle habit or you’ll end up like this guy. This unfortunate man’s rectum fell out after prolonged squatting on the toilet with his phone.
According to a report published in The Mirror, a Chinese man was immediately rushed to the hospital after suffering from a rare medical condition. After several medical check-ups, the resident doctors from the Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University was shocked to discover that the man’s rectum fell out of place.
How could this have happened in the first place? After a series of evaluation, the doctors found out that the unidentified Chinese man reportedly sat too long in the toilet the night prior to his admission to the hospital.
Based on his narration, he was sitting on the toilet for about 30 minutes while busily playing video games on his smartphone. Apparently, he was too hooked on the game to notice the passing time. After that incident, the man reported extreme pain and discomfort in his rectum.
The doctors in the hospital diagnosed the man with rectal prolapse, which occurs when the muscles in the rectum slides out of place, causing it to stick out of the anus. The Chinese man’s case was even more serious because doctors who were interviewing him found out that he has been suffering from rectal prolapse when he was just four years old.
In a worst-case scenario, incidents like these can lead to an infection. Fortunately, the doctors treated him immediately. For more details about this grisly incident, check out this video below:
