A 34-year-old woman from England is now struggling with a rare and unusual condition as a result of a minor surgery. During the procedure, the scalpel must have punctured her bowel, perturbing its normal function and leaving her with feces drowning her chest cavity and her internal organs. The woman’s family and friends have started a GoFundMe account, hoping they could help her cure her condition.
The woman keeps vomiting her feces after her bowels were punctured
Kelly Yeoman underwent a routine surgical procedure which should have caused no complications. However, soon after it was done, she started vomiting pieces of her meals, together with feces. She suspected a scalpel must have touched her bowels during the surgery, disturbing their activity.
Yeoman also has great difficulties breathing, as the feces have invaded her entire chest cavity. An X-ray she performed soon after the procedure shows how her internal organs were barely visible, and her body was drowned in fecal matter. As a result, she spent the last 11 weeks in a hospital in Bristol.
No treatments have proved effective so far
Unfortunately, her condition is not improving. She had to undergo two other surgeries in an attempt to correct the complications, but they weren’t successful. Moreover, she is suffering from a series of medical conditions, including an allergy to latex and oral medication. Therefore, doctors need to be extremely careful not to worsen her physical state.
So far, none of the treatments administered returned any positive results, and Yeoman’s relatives are watching her condition getting worse. This is why they decided to start a GoFundMe campaign, hoping they could afford the procedures which might cure this strange condition. Their target is $17,930, which should be enough for an effective treatment.
