As with any social networking site, Reddit is full of random stories and pieces of information; every now and again, however, it can serve up an important warning.
This turned out to be the case recently for a user named ‘Rebelrockstar’, who inadvertently learned that his wife’s bellybutton ‘trick’ was actually a sign of a hernia!
The man took to the site to share a video of his wife’s bellybutton popping out and back in again, explaining: “She actually has a space between the muscles in her abdomen from the last pregnancy. Glad I’m a guy.”
It wasn’t long before fellow Redditors grew concerned over the footage however, with one pointing out that it looked as though the man’s wife actually had a hernia.
“If that’s your wife, please get it looked at asap. Today,” wrote one user.
Although Rebelrockstar initially assured him that it was ‘normal’ (his wife is actually a doctor, as it turns out), a further edit proved that the assumption was correct.
“You’re right! She said it is an umbilical hernia! F***, Reddit should just be my doctor,” he wrote.
Wow. We bet they are both glad now that he shared that seemingly random video with the world.
