In Order to Correct Bow-Leggedness, Screws Are Inserted Into Bone and Tightened 3 Times Every Day
Recently, netizen @朱小辫儿 posted on Weibo: There’s a girl on the Tianya BBS forum who had surgery to correct her “O-shaped legs” [bowed legs]. Every day, she takes a wrench and tightens every screw inserted in her bones three times, each time 7 mm deeper…3 months later, she took these screws that had already fused with her bones and flesh out. I keep wondering, what about the bloody holes in her legs?
Because this microblog post included a photograph of two legs with screws attached, it immediately caused a widespread stir with netizens, with many calling it shocking, “The pictures are horrifying”, and quite a few of them questioned, “Is it really necessary to do this just to correct bowed legs?” or “I know girls want to be pretty, but I’ve never met one willing to go this far just to be pretty.”
What are your thoughts on this? I decided not to post the other photos because some of them are bloody. To view the whole article, click here.
