A 36-year-old woman has been affected a lot by a mysterious condition that has caused her stomach to grow uncontrollably.
In the past 2 years, Huang Guoxian, the woman, has grown her belly uncontrollably because of the mysterious illness.
Her belly currently weighs 19 kilograms and is still getting larger.
The woman is from rural Guizhou Province and is making pleas through social media and local media to raise money so she could go to a specialist.
Guoxian wants her condition to have a diagnosis and get it treated.
The woman says that her stomach makes it impossible for her to sleep, walk, and even look after her children.
She said that her stomach began to swell 2 years ago and went to get professional help when she started to feel a lot of pain.
Doctors reportedly gave her medicine and the pain went away, however, the stomach continued to expand.
It was reported that the woman has liver cirrhosis, ovarian cancer, as well as an abnormal buildup of fluid in the abdomen and chest.
However, they could not know what was causing her stomach to swell up.
The woman currently weighs 121 pounds.
She says she faces many difficulties with day-to-day life and claims that the huge mass has also made her more temperamental.
Huang says that she has not been able to sleep properly and ends up leaning against cushions or sitting on the bed to get some sleep.
She also can’t stand up for long periods of time.
I used to do homework very quickly, but now my big belly has seriously impacted my normal life. My two children are still young. Their grandmother and grandfather are helping to look after them now. I hope to recover and become healthy as soon as possible.
She currently wants to seek professional medical diagnosis, however, she has no money for it.
