Man almost dies after his bowel filled with so much poop it BURST!

A 24-year-old man almost died when his bowels filled with so much poo it caused his organs to shut down.

The man had a history of chronic constipation and had been hospitalized numerous times for issues related to it over the past 4 years.  He went in to see a doctor after suffering from abdominal pain and diarrhea.  A CT scan showed he had a megarectum which is a condition that causes the bowels to dilate. The now enlarged bowel was filled with poo and started to split causing his internal organs to shut down. He had to be rushed into surgery!
