World's largest kidney

Doctors have removed the “world’s largest” kidney from a man in Dubai. The organ weighed 9lbs 3oz – more than an average newborn baby. The 56-year-old patient also had his second kidney, which was also severely enlarged, removed.

The operation took place at Dubai Hospital after the man complained he was unable to walk or talk, and he is now living on dialysis while waiting for a kidney transplant according to Sun UK.

Surgeons operated on Ahmad Saeed, taking out both of his enlarged kidneys, after diagnosing him with polycystic kidney disease. It had caused several cysts to form on the man’s kidneys.

The larger of the two measured 34cm by 17cm in diameter and weighed 9lbs 3oz. In contrast, a normal kidney measures around 12cm by 6cm and weighs 5oz.

Doctors at the hospital said the kidneys are the largest ever reported. The last world record, they noted, was set at 4lbs 6oz.

Saeed’s polycystic kidney disease, caused his kidneys to swell in size. They grew so big they were soon crushing his internal organs, forcing him to undergo surgery.

Saeed told how his failing health led him to become depressed and withdrawn. He said:

Before the surgery, I felt so tired and had an enlarged stomach. I didn’t feel like talking to friends or going out at all. I couldn’t walk properly and I just wanted to stay in my room with the door closed. Now, I am back to normal, I can move, I can jump and I can run. No one believes that I have had both kidneys removed.

He is currently undergoing dialysis and in the next few months will undergo a kidney transplant.

Saeed’s kidneys were removed in 2016 but have only just been verified with a certificate from the Guinness Book of World Records. This is because they were waiting on photographic evidence of the organs.

Dr. Fariborz Bagheri, head of the Urology Department at Dubai Hospital, said:

The Guinness World Records requested photographic evidence of the kidneys on the weighing scale, which we didn’t have as we contacted them months after the kidneys were removed.

Married man heartbroken after his woman slept with nine different men

A married man has been left heartbroken as he finds out that his wife who is a Nurse has earlier slept with nine different men.

The man who is a civil servant, revealed that things hadn’t been going smoothly in his marriage after his wife left for her post-basic nursing training in 2017, and had been compounded by his busy schedule at work.

Things progressively deteriorated between them as he comes back from work, too tired to have a bedtime with his wife when she comes home for break from school, she inturn began suspecting him of cheating.

After she graduated from school in 2018, there was still no improvement in their relationship as it grew colder with time and when he inquired about it, she’d say he’s the one not being romantic.

A few years later, on October 2021, after he dropped her off for her night shift, she had forgotten her mobile phone in the car; she called, using a colleague’s phone, and told him to help her charge it.

On getting home, he became overwhelmed with the desire to check her phone but unfortunately found it locked.

The phone was subsequently unlocked by their little son only for him to discover what he had feared most after he went through her phone.

Read an excerpt from his post below:

“Well my story goes like this. I got married to my wife in 2013, and she is a nurse. I am a civil servant working with the federal government. Things were rosy for a while and sometime in 2017, she got nursing, and she left for school, while in school, our communication became less and to be honest, I contributed to it, I was over busy at work and she was always trying to get my attention, which became somewhat difficult. I wasn’t cheating at all physically with any lady, but I was chatting with some ladies online. Somehow my wife found out about them, for some she confronted them headlong but without my knowledge and at and at a point, it it degenerated into an argument, but we sorted that out and I apologized.

During those times, our sxx life was really down, and on God, I couldn’t explain why. Sometimes I will come back from the office super tired and I will try to make love to my wife but the erection wouldn’t be there. It became yet another issue, cos she thought I was having sxx elsewhere that is why she has become undesirable to me, but God is my witness, I wasn’t. I tried all my best to convince her, well she either sounded convinced or she just wanted the issue to slide. She graduated mid 2018 and we reunited.”
