Don’t play with your smartphone on the toilet bowl…your bowels might fall out

A man in China had his bowels fall out of his body after sitting on the toilet for half an hour. All these while he was playing with his smartphone.

The medical condition is known as a rectal prolapse. It’s common among children and old people in particular.

The man noticed after sitting on the toilet bowl for half an hour that there was a “ball-sized” lump hanging out his anus. He was only able to walk with some assistance from a friend.

Doctors found that there was a “tail” measuring about 16cm which protruded from his anus. The report said the problem happended because he spent too long sitting on the toilet bowl while playing with his phone.

on of the hospital’s doctors said that most rectal prolapses can be retracted, but the man’s case was an exception. He had apparently suffered from rectal prolapses from 4 years old.

The doctors had to operate on the man to remove the protrusion since they were unable to retract the prolapse. He was only able to walk 2 days later.

According  to the doctor, it was possible that the man’s pelvic muscles had weakened while he was trying to eliminate waste and sitting on the toilet bowl for too long triggered the prolapse.
