These cases are usually patients who I, or my colleagues have seen but this one was published in literature. They are de-identified and many instances have been presented in more depth in an academic setting. These videos are not individual medical advice and are for general educational purposes only. I do not give medical advice over the internet.

    My dream came true! I finally became a great actor! Thanks for having me Dr. Bernard, it was great having you. I am so glad that burger is no longer in my belly 🙂

  2. shhhhhhh says:

    I love the glorious grin GugaFoods gives when he portrays the “enormous passing of flatulence that lasted several minutes.” I can just imagine how the actual patient felt. Relief! And no surgery!

    • Pierre Etienne schneider says:

      I have not finished the video yet, but that’s exactly what I expected to happen.

      That, and a interesting bowel movement.

      Edit: that’s it!!!!

    • John Smith says:

      i know someone who had the last min sh*ts a couple hours before going into surgery like that guy but hardened stools instead of 18 burgers. severely painful

  3. Dee says:

    Between @GugaFood ‘s portrayal of the patient and the, uh, sudden unexpected positive outcome of the case, this video put a big dumb grin on my face. Thank you both for everything that you do!

    Something like this happened to my dad. ‘All you can eat steak’ was something he took as a challenge. Except, when he got to the ER they did imaging and decided the big bulge in his GI tract was a fatal cancer. They were about to operate, but his potassium and magnesium levels were too low, so they gave him an IV with both and waited until his electrolytes were healthier …. and that night, ‘a fart the lord and his dead relatives had to hear’ was followed by ‘the biggest poop ya ever saw’ (as reported by my step mom). Next day he was stable, and they opened him up, ran his entire GI tract, and found zero evidence of the great big lump of fatal cancer the ER reported. Boy, talk about embarrassing.

    This is the crossover I never knew I needed. But I need more of it. Beardmeetsfood should make one with you to explain how his body manages to constantly eat as much as he does

      Have you got a dessert menu? 😀

    • Coyote Long says:

      “Presenting to the emergency room hungry and severely disappointed at not having gotten his dessert”

    • Auggie Doggie’s Mommy says:

      I wonder why it’s only now those diabetes drugs are being seen to cause gastroparesis? Was this seen in the study for use in diabetics or is it only seen in those using it for weight loss?

  6. conundrum2u says:

    Pretty cool when you see 2 youtubers you watch independently, collaborate. This was a fun one. Glad the patient recovered.

  7. Chubbyemu says:

    Burger good 🍔

  8. pikachuurin says:

    This reminded me of the time I was at urgent care with my gf and I went to use the toilet. Someone before me didn’t flush and there was a mound of brown the size of which i’d never even imagined iceberging in the bowl. I hope whoever left it got out okay.

  9. Diane Klaver says:

    This was an interesting case. I was surprised the stomach could stretch enough to compress blood vessels and starve off organs. Not what I was expecting.

  10. Lauren P says:

    Shout out to Guga’s incredible acting here! He was brilliant 😂
    I felt ill after eating a burger the other night with 2 beef Pattie’s, bacon and an egg. I can’t even imagine what 8 pounds of beef would feel like. Urgghhh. Thanks for another excellent video ❤👍🍔

    • Robert Demon says:

      I love having a great big feed on holidays like Christmas, one Christmas I ate 4 crayfish a heap of prawns and garlic bread along with vegetables and salad and washed it down with a few beers and wines. I was stuffed but not feeling sick, had the best sleep afterwards and a good crap the next day. I couldn’t imagine eating 8 pounds of ground beef that would feel awful.
