Man Gets Poo Transplant Created by jena on 11/4/2011 12:38:54 PM
This story is just...insane.
How far would you go to save your man/lady's life?
I tell mine that I will do anything for him, and I mean it. BUT, this gives me the heeby-jeebys (is that how you spell it)?!
However, you do what you gotta do.
My nurse friends tell me this is NOT a rare procedure, and they've done it many times.
Long story short....
This man suffers from a rare intestinal disease that causes diarrhea so severe that it can cause severe dehydration and even death.
After years of failed attempts to heal him, Doctors are going to transplant feces from his wife into his body in hopes that her antibodies
will take hold and cure his ailment.
