How do people who are amputated from above the waist use the bathroom?
I mean how do they go, when there is no obvious place for it to come from?
Additional Details
OH! I am very sure I know that they are amputated above the waist! There is a guy who works on the Jerry Springer show who is one of these people, and there is also another woman who I have seen on Discovery Channel in the same condition... It has never been mentioned how these people are able to "use the restroom" The woman on the Discovery Channel also had a baby! How is this possible? I know damn well the guy that works on Jerry Spinger does not have plumbing downstairs, so how do you explain this?

These people are retarted, I know what you are talking about! I don't know how they use the bathroom but I do atleast know what your talking about. :)

p.s. I have wondered that too

........ from above the waist
it could only be an arm or a finger

so it wouldnt make a difference

People who are amputated above the waste have no need to use the bathroom because they are dead.

I know someone who has a bag hooked up because he had to have part of his colon removed due to cancer. A person with no digestive system at all could not live. But, people have lost parts of their body, but still have some of it --that was the case with the guy I know--he had a colostomy bag. He has to empty it every day. It is unpleasant, but beats dying!

The woman with half a body - Sacral Agenesis

There are four levels (or "types") of malformation. The least severe indicates partial formation (unilateral) of the sacrum. The second level indicates a billateral (uniform) deformation. And the most severe types involve a total absence of the sacrum.

Depending on the type of sacral agenesis - bowel or urinary bladder deficiencies may be present. A permanent colostomy may be necessary in the case of imperforate anus. Incontinence may also require some type of continence control system (e.g. self-catheterization) be utilized. Occasionally if deformities of the knees, legs or feet would prove unresponsive to corrective action - amputation at the knee may be proposed.

I have never seen someone who was amputated ABOVE the waist. I don't think a person could live through that.

I have seen people who were amputated at the hips and they usually have urinal catheters and/or colostomy bags ( for Bowels)for any parts that may be missing. However I have never seen anyone alive who is amputated above the waist.
