 Since then her life changed forever, the operation was extremely unsuccessful and led to abdominal adhesion.

Abdominal adhesions are bands of fibrous tissue that can form between abdominal tissues and organs that are normally separate.

Later her wound from her previous surgery split open, causing her guts to fall out of her body.

Hubei couldn’t afford aftercare and had no money for further treatment to have her intestines sewn back in.

A desperate woman has nothing to do but to gather her intestines in a plastic bag and carry them in a bum bag around her waist.

Her relatives said that Hubei got used to live like this as neither the woman no her family can afford surgery.
