I suppose it would be hard to take an opera singer seriously if her incredible high notes were punctuated with FLATULENCE. And that's exactly what's ruined one opera singer's career.
33-year-old Amy Herbst of Nashville, Tennessee was a professional opera singer. Her husband is an Army staff sergeant. Back in February of 2012, they had their first child at a hospital on an Army base in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
And during the delivery, the nurse performed a procedure on Amy called an episiotomy. That's where they cut the perineum . . . also known as the TAINT . . . to make it easier for the baby to come out.
Amy says she never consented to it . . . and they BOTCHED it. Since then, she's had NONSTOP flatulence and problems controlling her bowels. It's also caused her so much pain she can't perform opera anymore.
Amy just filed a lawsuit against the government for $2.5 million for negligence, pain and suffering, embarrassment, and loss of income. (Military Times / Daily Mail)
