I recently watched BodyShock: Half Ton Man
& BodyShock: Half Ton Mum
. How do people of this size go to the bathroom?

In the first documentary they touch on how Patrick is so big he'd never had sex with his wife. In the second, Renee was so big she'd been in bed for 4 years. Renee also says, "Most people of this weight cannot move around at all."
Watching either documentary you find yourself wondering how natural functions are carried out, but neither discuss it.
I'm looking for answers perhaps from healthcare professionals or those with some sort of experience of this condition, but certainly none from comedians. Thanks.
