I found this on the TLC website...
That sounds absolutely horrible! Did this guy get no medical advice on what he should and should not be doing? Could doctors not see or know that the wound wasn't sufficiently healed? How much fell out? Did he have to pick up his intestines? Did he get any infections?Man's Stomach Falls Out After Staples Removed
April 30, 2004 — George Sternats' first concern on returning home after having surgical staples removed from his abdomen following a stomach operation was to check on his backyard garden.
But instead of gathering some fresh vegetables, the 65-year-old found himself picking up his own stomach that had spilled out when his surgical wound reopened, his partner said on Friday.
"He was looking at how many tomatoes were on, and next minute I heard him scream 'Get the ambulance, my stomach fell out'," Cheryl Orme told reporters.
Sternats wrapped a towel around himself to hold his stomach in while Orme called an ambulance.
"They wanted to know if he had pains in his chest and I screamed at them 'His stomach fell out, he just got staples out from a cancer operation'," Orme recounted.
"What more can you say when your man's stomach's hanging out? Isn't that enough for them to come straight away?"
Sternats, from the northeastern city of Cairns, underwent surgery earlier this month to remove cancerous tumors from his abdomen and the surgical wound was closed with medical staples.
Doctors ordered the staples removed Wednesday morning and the couple returned home shortly after, Orme said.
Sternats was reported to be in stable condition but Orme said she planned to sue health authorities for negligence in removing the staples too soon.
"It's the most horrific thing I've ever seen, especially with someone you love," she said. "Every time I try to sleep I see George holding his stomach in his hands."
LOL, all these questions... Like you guys know the answers .
