Fair warning, this is absolutely gross.
Going down the list of remedies to help cure constipation, sticking an eel up your rear has to be pretty low on that list.
A 49-year-old Chinese man, however, thought this was the best method for him to undertake. When he arrived at the hospital in Guangzhou, doctors said his stomach was inflated like a balloon and causing him immense pain.
The eel, whose head was reportedly as large as a ping-pong ball, actually broke through the man’s intestines and made a “mess” in his abdominal cavity, actually almost killing him.
You can watch the entire, gross, inhumane video HERE.
The patient made a full recovery, but unfortunately the eel died upon being removed.
RIP Butt Eel.
