Wichita, Kan. (AP) Authorities are considering whether to file charges in the case of a woman who they say sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years.

The 35-year-old Kansas woman had been the bathroom for so long, it appeared her skin had grown around the seat. Police say she had to be pried from the toilet with a crowbar and the seat was removed at the hospital.

Kory McFarren, the woman's boyfriend, told the Associated Press he wasn't to blame, although he says he should have gone for help sooner. But he says after a while -- quote -- ``you kind of get used to it.''

He said his girlfriend had developed a phobia about leaving the room because of childhood beatings.

She is in fair condition at a hospital in Wichita, although McFarren says she has an infection in her legs and that she could wind up in a wheelchair.
