Imagine this.

You’re writhing in pain on the way to hospital, a rabid creature flailing inside your body ready to harvest on your internal organs, yet you just won’t tell the doctor how it got there.

This is what a man in China did when he had to have an eel removed from his anus.

Arriving at the hospital drunk, the man in his 40s, who refused to be named, was operated on in Nanchang University hospital after the eel had wriggled up his body and caused a serious obstruction.

Operated on by a team of doctors, the eel, which is also a culinary delicacy in China, was removed after it was found nestling alongside his intestines.

Some pretty graphic photos of the ordeal can be found here if you’re that way inclined.


Apparently, this is the not the first time this year that a story like this has come to light.

In April, a man in Guangdong Province, China  had the same species of eel removed from his intestines after he shoved one of the animals up his anus “to cure constipation”.
