The SUN: We take you to China where a video shows the moment when doctors removed a live eel from a man’s stomach. The 49-year-old man said he put the live eel up his butt to cure his constipation. Whatever you need to tell yourself to help you sleep at night, buddy.
When the man arrived at the hospital in Guangzhou a doctor said the patient’s stomach was inflated like an air balloon, causing pain.
The eel, which is said to have a head as large as a ping-pong ball, broke through the intestines and made “a mess” in the man’s abdominal cavity, “almost killing him,” a doctor said.
The eel was said to have died shortly after it was removed from the man’s stomach. But the patient is said to have made a full recovery.
This isn’t the first story of an eel getting put up someone’s butt.
The moral of the story is that for constipation, laxatives work way better than shoving a live eel up your butt.
