Woman sat on toilet for two years

A WOMAN in US has spent two years stuck to a toilet before her boyfriend finally called for help.

The woman, who has not been named, initially refused medical help, but was convinced by emergency services and her boyfriend that she needed to leave the bathroom and go to hospital.

Sheriff Bryan Whipple told AP it appeared the 35-year-old woman’s skin had grown around the seat.

“We pried the toilet seat off (the toilet) with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital,” Sheriff Whipple said. “The hospital removed it.”

“It is hard to imagine. … I still have a hard time imagining it myself.”

The boyfriend told police he brought the woman food and water and asked her to come out of the bathroom everyday, AP reported.

And her reply would be, ‘Maybe tomorrow’,” Whipple said. “According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom.”

He eventually called police only to say there was “something wrong” with his girlfriend.

Police found the woman in the bathroom of the 36-year-old man’s flat, sitting on the toilet with her tracksuit pants around her thighs.

She was “somewhat disoriented, and her legs looked like they had atrophied,” Sheriff Whipple told AP. “She said that she didn’t need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave.”.

Authorities told AP they did not know whether the woman was mentally or physically disabled. She is currently in a “fair condition” at a hospital in Wichita.

Sheriff Whipple told AP investigators planned to present their report to the county attorney who would determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman’s boyfriend.
