Please check information before publishing it. The whole story does not make any sense. It's impossible to tell there is a "male organ" inside your bladder, let alone have anyone notice it. Even during surgical birth, you open the uterus, and not the bladder. I love QI, but publishing thi is just too disappointing.
Abi's comment, November 30, 2011 10:28 AM
I agree with Carol. this story obviously doesn't make any sense. How could she tell she had a male organ inside her bladder? As a medical student, I can't even understand the medical basis for believing she had developed a male organ inside her bladder (of all places) so late in life. Please don't post things that are obviously rubbish. QI is supposed to be a show about facts and information.
