Man shoved 8-inch deodorant can up his butt, left it there for 3 weeks
He tried to use a deodorant and ended up with an anti-poo-spirant.
A 27-year-old man in India had to be hospitalized after allegedly shoving a deodorant canister up his butt, where it remained for three weeks before doctors removed it.
Doctors shared a graphic video of the emergency backdoor evacuation, noting the team was shocked to witness the patient’s case.
“This was a big deal for us,” Tapas Ghosh, the superintendent of Burdwan Medical College’s hospital, where the patient was treated, told India’s News18. “We treated him with uttermost care.”
The unnamed patient had reported to the medical facility, located in West Bengal, on Wednesday after experiencing severe abdominal pain, Jam Press reported.
There, doctors conducted several X-rays, which revealed that the poor soul had a 7½-inch deodorant can inexplicably lodged in his colon near the anus. ...
Doctors believe that the patient had wedged the antiperspirant up his anus, although his reasons for doing so remain unclear — but likely did not include remedying a smelly bum.
To make matters worse, the can was reportedly up his can for 20 days, during which the unfortunate fellow was unable to relieve himself. Medics believe that the young man’s life could’ve been in jeopardy had he not reported to the hospital, News18 reported.
Thankfully, doctors were able to remove the deodorant during a two-hour surgery, as seen in literal stomach-churning footage given to Jam Press. The graphic 45-second video shows the team of surgeons slicing open the man’s stomach lining to unveil a silver spray can, which they then remove and hold up to the camera like a bowling trophy. ...
