Opera Singer Blames Botched Op for Farting

I guess taking Gas X or Beano before a performance isn't an option.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A singer with the Nashville Opera Company is suing the federal government saying a botched childbirth operation at a military post has caused flatulence and incontinence and threatened her career.

Amy Herbst and her husband, former Army Staff Sgt. James Herbst, claim a nurse-midwife at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital at Fort Campbell, Ky., caused her injuries during the birth of her son in February 2012 when the nurse performed an episiotomy to enlarge the birth opening.

The couple, who live in Cincinnati, claims the nurse made the incision during the second stage of Herbst's labor, without informing Herbst or getting her consent. During a follow-up visit, another nurse told Herbst attempts to repair the incision had been unsuccessful.

Herbst alleges she is unable to work as a professional opera singer as a result of incontinence and excessive gas, the lawsuit says.

Does not say if the nurse performed the incision to save the babies or mothers life, this is crucial information.
