The case of a 72-year-old woman who has been pregnant for 30 years has gotten social media attention after a short documentary was done about her situation.
In the video by Afrimax, the aged woman could be seen with a protruding stomach as she recounted her situation.
According to the woman, she took in 6 months after she lost her husband. Upon medical examination, it was confirmed that she was pregnant with a male child.
Problem set in when she checked in at the hospital 6 months later only to be told that what was in her womb has taken another form and is no longer a boy.
Medical doctors told the woman – who mysteriously lost all her kids – that the only way to get the thing in her stomach out was by an operation that has a 50/50 survival rate.
The woman has since resigned to fate hoping to one day be consumed by whatever is in her tummy.
On how she survives, the distraught woman said kind-hearted neighbours provide her meals. Her grandchildren also look after her.
