Famous NBC weatherman, Al Roker, pooped his pants at the White House; Chicago surgeon believes it was due to the weatherman’s gastric bypass surgery he had back in 2002.

Roker explains to Dateline:

“When you have a bypass and your bowels [have] been reconstructed, you think you’re pretty safe. And I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to. And as I’m walking to the press room. I gotta pass a little gas here. I’m walking by myself. Who’s gonna know? Only a little something extra came out. I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew.”

The director of the Loyola Center for Metabolic Surgery and Bariatric Care, Dr. Bipan Chand, who wasn’t part of the team of surgeons that performed the surgery confirms that Al Roker’s weight loss led him to experience the phenomenon dubbed “dumping”.

“One might be a gastrointestinal process that includes consumption of a high sugar load that leads to intestinal influx of fluid,” Chand says. “This can lead to diarrhea as well as vomiting and can occur in many post-Roux-en-Y gastric bypass patients but does not occur in all of them.”
