Are you eating? You might want to skip ahead or put down the spoon for a second (especially if you're eating soup).
So there's this guy in Nova Scotia who caught C. difficile after a surgery and was having a hell of a time getting the hospital to treat it.
He then went ahead and gave himself a fecal transplant using his cousin's… well… feces in an enema. Obviously he didn't want his name released to the press.
The doctors were shocked for two reasons: He did it to himself, and IT WORKED.
Well, more so that it worked even though he did it to himself, because the proper procedure does have a 90% success rate!
We're glad it all worked out — he saved his own life!
The more you know!
