Warning! This one is not for the faint of heart and contains graphic images
Doctors have been left baffled after finding an entire glass in the stomach of a 55-year-old man – who claims he swallowed the cup while drinking tea.
The patient was admitted to a hospital in Bihar, India, suffering from constipation and severe abdominal pain.
He underwent an ultrasound and X-ray, during which doctors located a “serious disturbance” in his intestines.
To their surprise, this “disruption” turned out to be an entire glass.
The doctors tried to remove the glass from the rectum with an endoscopic procedure, but were not so lucky; they had no choice but to operate on the man to finally remove him.
The embarrassed patient claims he simply swallowed the glass while drinking a cup of tea, although doctors are unconvinced as the food pipe is too narrow for the object to fit through.
Dr Mahmudal Hasan, leader of the surgical team of doctors, said: “How the glass entered the body of the said patient is still a mystery.”
Fortunately, the patient is currently stable after his curious misadventure.
The unnamed man was taking part in the sex stunt before having the string lodged in his urethra and ended up having to have it removed while under local anesthesia.
Anyone else hugging their legs together?
The patient’s unfortunate situation was documented in the medical journal Radiology case reports which explained how the man had used the string – which is usually used to string beads – while he was “fully erect and watching a pornographic video”.
According to reports, this was the first time he had done this, although the study noted that he watched porn and masturbated every day.
He went on to point out: “In several cases, patients may deny having inserted objects and claim that the objects were accidentally inserted instead.
“This is due to feelings of embarrassment in admitting behavior to gain sexual gratification, which often leads to difficulty in acquiring accurate information during history taking.
“Therefore, patients often came to the doctor with late and serious complications. The patient in this report was also reluctant to share his condition during the history due to his embarrassment.
“Besides being embarrassed, it was also difficult to communicate with him.”
