"Man told for years he was ‘just fat’ has 130-pound tumor removed"

Via Reddit: For 15 years, the tumor had grown on Roger Logan’s abdomen until it reached the size of a small adult, according to KERO.

“Usually at home I would sit and it would rest on the floor,” Logan, 57, said about the tumor that he says doctors dismissed for years as “just fat.”

Logan said he was practically confined to a reclining chair inside a room he rarely left.

“They said it’s just fat, you’re just fat … it’s just fat developing there,” Logan said.

Doctors believe the benign tumor likely started because of an ingrown hair, then grew quickly.

Some people have spouses and kids like that, but they usually weigh more than 130 lbs

Did anyone consider the rights of the tumor? Tumor Lives Matter.

He lost 130 pounds and he's still morbidly obese.

Amartel said...

True, but the tumor may have made exercise, other activities associated with weight loss, difficult. Or maybe it just kept nagging him about his weight.

It's not a tumah!

Did you see the female relatives? The only thing that family excercised was their table muscles. He probably demanded extra butter in his saline drip.

Sixty Grit said...

Butter, and other natural fats, are not usually a problem. Demanding extra sugar in his high-fructose corn syrup drip, on the other hand...

Oh gross. I clicked through to the photos including the surgery photos. And, yeah, dude, put the ladle down. Good gawd. No wonder the docs assumed he was "just fat."

Hey, has anyone heard from Southern Thomas ST lately? I usually get an email when he makes a post and I haven't gotten one in a long while. Not that I remember.

Hotel California started playing. That's what made me think of him.

There has been a shouting shortage lately. Actually, for a while. Hope all is well.

I'm closing up shop here at HCG&G after 12 years. The era of weblogs has been over for a while. And, I'm tired of the culture of internet argument.

I'll be starting a new blog over at Wordpress as soon as I figure out what I what to name it. No politics. Just art and music and entertainment.

Watch here. I'll post the link once I create the blog.
