If you relieve yourself in the morning, you will feel comfortable all day long. Even, many with intestinal problems drink tea or warm water every morning to make bowel movements easier. On the contrary, if it is impossible to put the excrement out, it is very likely that it will lead to very high risk of death, however, in fact, there was a man who can survive after 13 years without defecating.
If you do not do number two for a long time, your stomach might be swollen and restless, getting continuous spasm.
The waste stored in the body for too long is easy to cause death. In detail, a 16-year-old girl in England passed away because of the heart attack due to not doing number two for 2 months. Her intestine gradually grew big, causing the risk of compressing the chest cavity and spreading to other parts of the body
Additionally, there have been many similar situations. However, the story of a 29-year-old man who did not relieve himself for 13 years is very very rare.
This man suffered from Hirschsprung disease, congenital colon enlargement, leading to intestinal obstruction and cannot be distributed outside the body. Currently, his colon is stored and displayed at the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
His large colon contained 3 composts, 7.6m long and 2.4m wide, making his lower abdomen very bulky.
Later, he had severe constipation with more than 18kg in the colon when he died.
Hirschsprung disease is a congenital disease that causes the loss of nerve cells in the intestinal muscles from an early age. People with this disease can survive through adulthood.
