I’m not proud of the fact I got a cheap laugh out of this, but I did:
I met a friend of mine for lunch today. She’s an intensive care nurse and she told me about a patient they had in ICU…
…who weighed 370kg. For those of you not metrically inclined, that’s a little over 800lbs.
So this dude is like documentary fat (he apparently had been on a documentary about super fat people). The really impressive thing was he was only 26!
He obviously wasn’t in the best of health, but their medical equipment just wasn’t touching the sides. Dialysis machine wouldn’t work as it couldn’t cope with the sheer size, and when they had to catheter him a regular catheter wouldn’t work so they had to contact the fucking zoo and borrow the catheter they use on polar bears!
Fucking polar bear catheter! Imagine that?
