Hong Shu drank two litres of spirits everyday for more than 30 years, but he never knew the outcome could be so dangerous. He developed a fatty tumour that led him to be called 'the man with the horse's neck'.
He is from Guangzhou, southern China and has undergone multiple surgeries to remove the deposits. Over the period of 30 years, Hong has consumed tens of thousands of litres of the hard liquor, triggering the disease. Lets see the painful journey of this man, hoping he recovers soon from it.
In the Madelung disease, fatty deposits accumulate in various areas of the body including the neck, arms and legs. It started with swelling behind both of his ears but gradually spread to around his throat area.
But after being diagnosed, he has been given a fresh start as doctors carried out three successive surgeries to remove the fatty deposits.
Doctors performed multiple surgeries to cure him and he will be discharged from hospital soon. We wish him all the best for future!
