I got this plush after my original diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis, which I'd had for 18 years, was "upgraded" to Chron's after I was perforated during a colonoscopy. I was really devastated about being in the hospital all summer long, but when I got this plush I couldn't help but laugh and gush over his cuteness. Not only is it a cute plush, it also works great for bracing against your stomach while coughing or sneezing after abdominal surgery, so he has accompanied me to all my hospital visits since I got him and is a hit with all the hospital staff. He is a hospital bag essential!
I have been living with Crohn's Disease for 12 years now. Just last month I had my second surgery to remove more of my intestines. My best friend came to the hospital with a new set of intestines for me. Not only was it incredibly hilarious but it was also helpful too. The intestine pillow works amazing as a post operative cough pillow to hold tight to your abdomen. During my month long stay in the hospital I showed off my pillow to all of the staff and they loved it.
I bought this intestine pillow as a little gift to myself. I've been experiencing symptoms of IBS for about a year now, and this plushie makes me smile, which is really important when you feel like crap (Ha! Intestines joke!). The plushie is really high quality and pretty decent size. The fabric is soft and pleasing to the touch, which is great for me because I have sensory sensitivities. The design is really cute, and it sort of helps to distract me from how awful I feel. Overall, the product is great, and I would definitely buy this (or any of the other I Heart Guts plushies) again.
The stuffed intestine is a hilarious gift for a guy who recently had surgery and had part of his intestine and his appendix taken out. For his birthday, we got him a new one! While funny (it has a smiling face on it...), I was super surprised to find that it was actually really high quality materials! It iis several inches thick and definitely soft enough/plush enough to use when actually napping. Too too funny, and surprisingly high quality for a gag gift -- great value!
