Man in despair over his 'leaking stomach'

Man in despair over his 'leaking stomach'

Lucas Dhlamini (37), from Thokoza in Ekurhuleni, SA, says that whenever he eats, food comes out on his stomach.

He said that in 2009, he felt as if his intestines were moving.

A day later, a blister appeared on his stomach and he was in a lot of pain.

When he arrived at Manapo Hospital in Phuthaditjhaba, Free State, in 2010, he said doctors operated.

"But later the wound started leaking fluid," he said. He returned to the hospital, but doctors only gave him bandages.

"Since then, I have been going to clinics and hospitals and not getting better," he said.



He moved to Johannesburg in 2012 and found a job as a security guard.

But, he said, it has been hard to keep up with the pressure of the job as his stomach pain is unbearable.

"Sometimes my shirt and trousers get wet with blood-stained fluid that keeps pouring out. It has the colour of the food I have eaten.

"I have gone many months without going to the toilet. Whenever I eat something, it just comes through the hole. Now, I always have plastic bags where food falls into from the stomach. I don't know what to do. Nothing has changed my life for the better," he said.

Lesemang Matuka, Gauteng Health acting head of communications, said Lucas approached Natalspruit Hospital for help about a year ago and has been receiving treatment and colostomy bags since then.

Hospital management said Lucas is happy about their treatment and support.
