Man's Bladder Ripped Apart After Holding Urine For Hours During Drinking Session
A man has discovered the consequences of holding in his urine for too long.
The man, known only as Mr Hu, was out for a boozing session and knocked back an impressive 10 bottles of beer.
Despite drinking a fair amount, the 40-year-old didn't answer nature's call once and went to bed after finishing his night on the town.
He woke up with intense abdominal before going to Zhuji People's Hospital in Zhejiang, eastern China. It was there he had a CT scan which showed the poor bloke had suffered three tears in his bladder.
Mr Hu wasn't even fully sober when he was admitted to hospital.

Doctors at the hospital quickly discovered that one of the tears in his bladder could have been fatal.
The tear had ruptured toward the 40-year-old's abdominal cavity, which then forced part of his intestines to go into his bladder. We don't need six years of medical school and a further decade in the field to assume that is probably not a good thing.
Doctors said if that had gone unchecked any longer, it could have killed the patient.
Thankfully, Mr Hu made a full recovery and he was eventually released from the hospital.
The human bladder can usually expand to accomodate up to 500 millilitres of liquid. Some of that will get absorbed by the body, even more so if you're dehydrated.
There's no word on whether mr Hu will suffer any long term damage or impairments as a result
