An Irish teenager said her refusal to fart around her boyfriend for two years landed her in the hospital, needing emergency surgery. 

Cara Clarke, 19, from Louth, Ireland, was at work when she developed "extreme stomach pain" on Tuesday, March 29.

The teen had to be rushed to a local hospital, where she was diagnosed with appendicitis.

Clarke explained her ordeal in a TikTok video which currently boasts over 2 million views.

"I do hold in my farts but I didn’t think I would be in hospital over it," Clarke said.

"I'm pretty easy-going other than the burps and farts. I was at work on Tuesday and I had this real extreme pain in my stomach."

"I went to the doctor in hysterics and he referred me straight to the hospital. I was in so much pain I couldn’t hold in my tears. My doctor said to me 'I’m so, so sorry you’re in so much pain'. I was limping when I was walking all hunched over."

Clarke said her 21-year-old boyfriend Kyle Duffy was 'dying laughing' after finding out her efforts to hold it in left her needing of surgery.

"At hospital, I started blaming my boyfriend because I do always hold my farts in around him. We've been together two years and it's still the case. Kyle was dying laughing. He honestly didn't know what to say. He said 'god, people are going to think you're afraid of everything with me'."

"At this stage, I'll just have to let it out from now on." 

"The hospital knew it was appendicitis. It was a bit of a waiting game then they took my bloods and did some tests. It was pretty busy so I was there overnight and then the next day, they did the operation in the afternoon. That's when I got my appendix out."

"I came out the hospital on Thursday evening. It wasn't one of those hectic surgeries that it used to be a while ago. I'm on strong painkillers and I should be back to work in the next week or so."

Clarke said she did not expect her video to go viral and is overwhelmed by the response she is receiving from netizens all over the world.

"I'm just chilling now and taking advantage of everyone catering for me," Clarke said. 

"I did not expect this response at all. I'd really only be having a craic with TikTok. Kyle just basically called and knew I'd posted the TikTok video. We always take the p**s out of each other."

"I didn't expect it to go viral overnight."

Clarke has vowed to just 'let it out from now on' after admitting she had no clue how dangerous holding in farts could be.
