When Roger Logan started gaining weight in his stomach, doctors told the 57-year-old Mississippi man it was "just fat," the Bakersfield Californian reports.
Not quite. According to KERO, Logan is recovering after traveling across the country to California to have a 130-pound growth removed from his abdomen. (The Californian claims it was 140 pounds.) Doctors say the benign tumor, which started growing about 12 years ago, probably began as an ingrown hair.
But it kept growing until it was massive and had its own blood supply. Logan had spent most of the past five years living in an armchair, unable to run his antique store or go fishing.
