Pregnant Man Carries His Twin For 36 Years!!!!!
36 years of pregnancy?
This is definitely creepy! An Indian man named Sanju Bhagath, 36 years of age carried his twin brother or a parasite fetus in his belly for 36 years!!!
Sanju was always concerned about his big stomach but went on with life assuming that's the way it is for him. He always had discomfort and pain, people would notice him every where he went because of his big, bloated stomach.He realised something is wrong when his stomach started growing bigger. One night when he felt excruciating pain and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, the Doctors diagonised a tumor and prepared for an operation, they were all in for a big shock! Basically the tumor was so big that it was pressing on his diaphragm and that made Sanju very breathless. Dr.Ajay Mehta of Tata Memorial hospital in Mumbai who operated upon Sanju said ''because of the sheer size of the tumor, it makes it difficult to operate. We anticipated a lot of problems'' He also said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins operation but while operating on Sanju Bhagat, Dr Mehta saw something he had never expected. As he cut open Sanju's stomach to remove the tumor a lot of fluid spilled out ....and then something very weird happened..
Dr Mehta said' ''To my surprise and horror, I could shake hands with somebody inside, It was a bit shocking for me''.
One of the Doctor involved in this operation said '' I just put my hand inside and felt there are lot of bones, first one limb came out, then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws and hair''
Dr Mehta said '' The team of Doctors and I was confused, horrified and amazed. It looked as if Sanju Bhagat have given birth, what was removed from his stomach was actually the mutated body of his twin brother. Sanju had suffered the most strange medical condition fetus in fetu.
Fetus in fetu--: It may be a parasitic twin fetus growing within its twin host. Very early in a pregnancy, in which both fetuses share a common placenta, one fetus wraps around and envelopes the other. The enveloped twin becomes a parasite. Its survival depends on the survival of its twin host by drawing on the host twin's body supply.
The normal twin has to feed the enveloped twin from the nutrients received over a single umbical cord, it usually dies before birth but in Sanju Bhagat's case it survived!
Fetus in fetu can survive as a parasite after birth in rare cases until it starts growing and pose a great threat to the life of the host twin on whom its own life depends.
Sanju Bhagat said he was very much relieved after the operation as his pain, discomfort and inability to breathe had completely disappeared. He did not want to know or see what the Doctor had removed from his stomach as it looked ghastly!
All his life he was teased that he looked pregnant and due to his abnormal belly he suffered much shame and misery.
Today Sanju Bhagat leads a normal life in good health but still people tease him saying, he went for an operation and had a baby!
