London, May 4 (ANI): A Peruvian mum-of-four is said to have been left bed bound for six months by her massive boobs.
Julia Manihuari, 29, was left unable to move after her chest grew to a gigantic N cup after the birth of her third son seven years ago.
“It was awful. If I tried to get up I would faint because my breasts were so heavy,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
Manihuari, who is a farmer’s wife living in northern Peru, was finally helped when local media paid for her to take a three-day boat trip to the nearest town for medical help.
Doctors diagnosed her as suffering from an extreme form of Bilateral Gynecomastia – an illness where the mammary gland keeps growing.
At the hospital, they had to cut two and half stone of flesh from her boobs fearing they could squash her lungs and kill her, and she emerged with a 34B cup after the six-hour op.
“Before the operation I couldn’t do anything, I just had to live with it, it got so bad that my breasts were touching my legs,” she said.
“I have always had a small build, and the stress on the rest of my body was agony.
“My breasts were growing by the day. I couldn’t move because my boobs and belly were the same size. My breasts became so huge my skin had sores and I had trouble breathing,” she added. (ANI)
