    Ugh!! That's just not right.

    What's even more sad is that they couldn't get the money together to get the operation, so they *sold* the rights to the Discovery Channel.

    Good for the woman, most likely, but now we can all look forward to seeing this on 'The Operation'.

    Morbid curiosity makes me curious, but just the thought of seeing a 175 pound tumor makes me cringe...

    :eek:

    yeah, i'm curious, but i'm also not sure if i want to see a tumor that's bigger than me...

    i saw a pic of the world record tumor (can't remember the weight, but it was huge) in the guinness book of world records... it just looked like a magnified image of a smaller bodily mass stuff....

    can't even imagine having to see this thing in person, much less having to operate on it to remove it! eck!! :eek: :( (where's the barfing smiley? :D )

    Wow, and that wasn't even the record. Can't imagine having 302lbs dragging along.

    I'm very happy to hear that Lucica Bunghez, 47, was able to have a successful surgery and recovery. It is very sad that they didn't have the technology to do the surgery sooner.
