According to a Daily Mail report, the 16-inch live eel already tore the man’s intestines. Further, it was in the man’s abdomen for a week before dying.

The unnamed patient, around in his 50s, thought an eel could solve his bowel problems after following a folk remedy.

After suffering from severe abdominal pain, the man sought medical attention at the Huangjiang Hospital in Dongguan, Guangdong province.

In a statement released in its social media site, the hospital reported that they already removed the eel. The man has already fully recovered. 

Attending physician Dr. Li told the local media that they already suspected a foreign object from a CT scan but could not tell where it came from.

The man immediately underwent an emergency abdominal operation after his condition became life-threatening. During the operation, surgeons found a dead eel in his belly.

Later on, the patient confessed inserting a 16-inch live eel into his rear to cure his long-term constipation.

The patient was treated in intensive care units for three days. He was discharged later on.
