A Chinese man is in the hospital after getting his colon ripped apart by an eel he stuck up himself so it could eat his ass out and get rid of the constipation.
A Chinese man who was constipated decided to use an eel to get relief.
The man told hospital staff that it was an ancient folk remedy, and the eel was supposed to eat inside and get rid the problem.
News came to light after the man sought help at Huangjiang Hospital in Dongguan, Guangdong province, due to severe abdominal pain.
The eel had gotten into the colon and ripped it apart. Dr Li from the hospital told the local media:
[We] suspected that there was a foreign object in his abdominal cavity from a CT scan. But we couldn’t tell where it came from.
Doctors were surprised to come across an entire eel while conducting surgery.
The man survived the surgery and will fully recover.
Footage released by Guangdong Television showed doctors removing a 16-inch eel while opening up the patients belly.
Doctors stated that there is no scientific proof that sticking an eel up your rectum to eat inside you will clear constipation.
