Medical → Dry gangrena

Gangrene is a complication of necrosis characterized by the decay of body tissues, which become black and malodorous. It is caused by infection or ischemia, such as from thrombosis (blocked blood vessel). Dry gangrene begins at the distal part of the limb due to ischemia and often occurs in the toes and feet.

The dark coloration is due to liberation of hemoglobin from hemolyzed red blood cells which is acted upon by hydrogen sulfide produced by the bacteria, resulting in formation of black iron sulfide that remains in the tissues. The line of separation usually brings about complete separation with eventual falling off of the gangrenous tissue if it is not removed surgically.

Where do I begin. My name is Ben and I have been dealing with my weight my entire life. Right now I weigh 489 lbs at 6 foot. Those who deal with obesity may relate to my struggle. It offends me when people who weigh 200 lbs worry about thier weight. I would love to be 200 lbs. As a child I grew up on a farm in Arizona. Both my parents were large people. When I was very young I talked to the cows on our farm. I picked up a very small piece of cow feces & played with it for a while, &, for reasons I cannot possibly comprehend, I put it in my mouth, chewed it & swallowed it. It was a gradual downward spiral leading into adulthood. By age 14 I was eating 2000 calories of cow feces & 5000 calories of mostly snacks & regular food(animal feces is often sterile). By adulthood I was eating 5000 calories of cow feces & 18,000 calories of mostly snacks. The hormones in the feces made me grow taller from 5' 8" to 6 foot. At 31 I was 596 lbs, currently I weigh 489 lbs

Micropenis is an unusually small penis. It is a medical condition which affects 0.6% of males. If you or someone you know has an extremely small penis, share your story.
