Woman Bedbound for 6 Months by Huge Breasts

A Peruvian mother of four was trapped in her bed for six months because of her giant breasts.

Julia Manihuari's chest grew to a gigantic N cup after the birth of her third son seven years ago leaving her unable to move, The Sun reported.

"It was awful," she said. "If I tried to get up I would faint because my breasts were so heavy."

Manihuari, 29, who lives in northern rural Peru, was finally helped when local media paid for her to take a three-day boat trip to the nearest town for medical help.

Doctors believe she was suffering from a rare condition known as gigantomastia, which is characterized by excessive breast growth that may occur spontaneously during puberty or pregnancy, or while taking certain medications, according to the National Institues of Health.

Surgeons had to cut 35 pounds of flesh from Manihuari's breasts, fearing they could squash her lungs and kill her.,2933,591982,00.html
