An Indian man admitted to hospital with abdominal pain had inserted a mobile phone charger cable into his manhood, a doctor who treated him told CNN.
The man went to a hospital in northeastern India claiming he had ingested some earphones, said the hospital’s general surgeon, Dr. Walliul Islam.
Doctors had to perform surgery when the cord didn’t appear despite the patient being prescribed laxatives.
“He came to us after five days (and) despite passing stool several times the cable did not come out,’’ Islam told CNN. “We then conducted an endoscopy but still couldn’t find anything.
“As the patient complained of severe pain, we decided to perform surgery and found that there was nothing in his intestine.”
An X-ray revealed the man to have a two-foot-long charging cable in his bladder, which was inserted via his urethra, the tube that leads from the penis to the bladder.
