Poop Transplant Could Save Arizona Man's Life

Figuratively speaking, a lot of guys take a lot of shit from their wives. Jerry Grant, 33, is literally taking shit from his wife -- and it will likely save his life.

Grant's had some poop problems for the past several months -- bleeding rectally, and what not -- and the procedure that will likely "save his life" involves taking his wife's feces and transplanting it into his body.

Grant suffers from a condition called clostridium difficile, an intestinal disease that causes severe diarrhea. Potentially, it can be fatal.

Transplanting his wife's feces into his body will replace some of the digestive bacterias his body lacks.

See 12News' video of Grant and his wife discussing the poop transplant -- and a doctor explain how it works -- below.
