Following blood testing, it was discovered that a patient’s appendix had ruptured, causing appendicitis. But there is a decent chance that she was hospitalized after holding farts in for 2 years around her boyfriend.
Never pass up on passing gas.
The reluctance of a 19-year-old Irish barista to fart around her partner for two years apparently prompted her appendix to rupture, forcing her to be hospitalized. On TikTok, a video depicting the gal’s gaseous mishap has received over 2 million views.
“I do hold in my farts but I didn’t think I would be in hospital over it,” Cara Clarke said of her deadly gas accumulation to Kennedy News.
After enduring “extreme pain” in her abdomen whilst working at her coffee shop last Tuesday, the Louth native sensed something was not right.

The teen was concerned, so she went to the doctor, who referred the frightened girl to the hospital.
“I was in so much pain I couldn’t hold in my tears,” lamented Clarke. “I was limping when I was walking all hunched over.”
It was then that she chose to tell doctors about her reluctance to let everything run out.
“At hospital, I started blaming my boyfriend because I do always hold my farts in around him,” Clarke admitted, claiming to be “easygoing” despite her dislike of burping and farting.
Following blood testing, it was discovered that her appendix had ruptured, causing appendicitis, and that she would need surgery to have it extracted. It is uncertain what triggers this ailment, however according to Johns Hopkins, it might be caused “when the tube that joins your large intestine and appendix is blocked or trapped by stool.”
To put it another way, Clarke’s 21-year-old boyfriend, Kyle Duffy, was apparently “dying laughing” at the prospect of not farting being the cause for such a dire circumstance.
“He honestly didn’t know what to say,” the perplexed woman explained. “He said, ‘God, people are going to think you’re afraid of everything with me,’” he remarked. While that may appear to be an ignorant response to a lover’s suffering, Clarke maintains that comedy enabled her get through the trauma.
Her appendectomy, fortunately, went smoothly.
“It was pretty busy so I was there overnight and then the next day, they did the operation in the afternoon,” Clarke explained. “That’s when I got my appendix out.”
On Thursday evening, the patient was released from the hospital and began taking strong painkillers. She anticipates returning to work in the next week or so.
“I didn’t expect it to go viral overnight,” Clarke said, expressing her amazement that her unusual condition created such a sensation on TikTok.
“Kyle just basically called and knew I’d posted the TikTok video,” she added. “We always take the p–s out of each other.”
Clarke intends to never hold her farts in again after her horrible ordeal. “At this stage, I’ll just have to let it out from now on,” she promised.
Last month, Viviane de Queiroz Pereira, a Brazilian singer, was hospitalized when her refusal to fart in front of her significant other culminated in a deadly methane buildup.
